The Coldest Place in the UniverseNovember 3rd, 2013
The Boomerang Nebula is the coldest place in the universe. At just 1 Kelvin — a single degree above absolute zero — this cloud of dust and gas is the coldest object in the universe. Astronomers recently captured a new image of the nebula using a radio telescope array called ALMA.
Sophie Bushwick of Scientific American discusses the studies being conducted by ALMA and more news from the world of science in the past few days.
