Nasa creating worlds coldest spot

March 15, 2017

Nasa has announced that it is planning to create the coldest spot in the Universe!

To run this experiment a box called the Cold Atom Laboratory is flying to the International Space Station this winter.

When it is set up it will freeze gas atoms to a billionth of a degree above absolute zero.

Absolute zero is -273.15C – it’s the temperature that scientists agree is the lowest possible one.

The Cold Atom Laboratory contains instruments such as lasers, a vacuum chamber and an electromagnetic “knife”.
They’ll work together to cool and slow down the gas particles until they barely move. The pull of gravity means that it’s not possible to do this on Earth.

It’s hoped the experiment could help with improving technologies, including sensors, computers and atomic clocks.
