What Is The Hottest Temperature Possible 

The idea of absolute hot springs from its better-known cousin, absolute zero, which, as you may recall, is 0 K, -273.15° C or -459.67° F. And although abridged definitions of the lowest temperature will frequently state it is the point at which matter stops moving, this is technically incorrect. Absolute zero is actually the point where molecular motion no longer produces heat (but does have zero-point energy).

Shrinking microscope lenses 

While batteries, screens and other electronic components get smaller and smaller, lenses have not done their part. Now, with a material science approach, scientists have created tiny meta-material lenses.

Ask Symmetry – Why do objects feel solid? 

A reader asked us, “If atoms are mostly empty space, then why does anything feel solid?” In this episode of Ask Symmetry, physicist James Beacham (post-doctoral researcher with the ATLAS Experiment group of The Ohio State University) helps explain the weirdness that appears at the atomic level.

Is Quantum Tunneling Faster than Light? 

Hello from the other side. In this episode find out how quanta can can move through solid objects.

Where are you right now? Until you interact with another particle you could be any number of places within a wave of probabilities. This is only one way that quantum mechanics challenges our perception of reality. Matt dives into these counter-intuitive ideas and explains the bizarre phenomenon known as quantum tunneling in this episode of Space Time.

Paper referenced in episode is “Measurement of the Single-Photon Tunneling Time” by Steinberg, Kwiat, & Chiao, 1993, Phys. Rev. Lett. 71, 708.
