  1. Absolute zero, 0 K on the Kelvin scale, is the lowest possible temperature, you just cannot get any colder. It has not been achieved but scientists are getting very close. The unit of the absolute temperature scale is named after Lord Kelvin (born William Thomson) who devised a scale of absolute temperature in 1848 in Glasgow University, where he was Professor of Natural Philosophy.

  2. Temperature is a measure of molecular vibrations. As the temperature gets colder, molecules become slower and slower. At absolute zero everything stops moving. So, there’s no such thing as a temperature less than absolute zero.
