Lasers create colorful light shows at concerts, are used by doctors in surgeries – and are used in scientific laboratories.
Physicists can use bright, hot lasers to slow atoms down so much that they measure -459 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mine’s a Star-opramen.
It's like one great big distillery up there.

Much of the current research in quantum computing involves work at close to absolute zero. A simple breakthough with an everyday material could see them work at more acceptable temperatures.
Frozen cold but not the way beyond absolute zero.
Absolute zero is the temperature (-273.15C) at which all motion in matter stops and is thought to be unreachable. But recent experiments using ultracold atoms have measured temperatures that are, in fact…
Atoms cooled to extremely low temperatures have been observed entering a rare state called “quantum criticality”. Physicists…
