Absolute Zero

Jun 11, 2023 | Science, Videos

Absolute zero is a place of mystery and wonder. The quest to reach this extreme temperature has captivated scientists for centuries, and now a new two-part documentary reveals the incredible stories of the pioneers who pushed the boundaries of science in their journey to discover the secrets of absolute zero.

The documentary tells the story of figures such as Clarence Birds Eye, Frederic ‘Ice King’ Tudor and James Dewar, who all contributed to the understanding of this remarkable phenomenon. It delves into the strange world that appears at -273.15°C (-459.67°F), where electricity flows without resistance, fluids defy gravity and light can be slowed down to just 38 miles per hour.

The implications of reaching absolute zero are vast – from nano-construction and neurological networks to quantum computing – so it’s easy to see why this became such an attractive goal for physicists throughout history. Even royalty were enthralled by its possibilities; one scene in particular focuses on a court magician’s use of alchemy, which made a king shiver!

If you’re interested in uncovering the secrets behind this ultimate temperature extreme, then don’t miss out on this intriguing two-part documentary. Follow these pioneering individuals as they push science to its limits, and discover how close they came to reaching absolute zero – with only a few millionths of a degree separating them from unlocking the mysteries that lie within!
