hi, can anyone confirm the 1degree above absolute zero for the
It would be similar to the Freon (sp?) in your AC system, or any expanding gasses which, as you know, drop in temperature when moving from a compressed state to a less compressed state. Just like the AC in your house or car, or even the fire extinguisher.
This is not a "confirmation", but the Boomerang nebula, a planetary nebula, is found to be expanding at a rapid rate that is 10 to 100 times faster than other known planetary nebula. This rapid expansion equals a fast drop in temperature, enough to be at just ~1 degree K.
thanks LABGUY, straying from the origonal question, if you can have
a 1k nebula is it going to far to say that there may be bose einstein
condition in space?
It could be. Helium will "degrade" at about 2.17*K, and Sodium took it down to 1 millionth *K in the MIT laser experiment. I guess it totally depends on the element, and temperature of course, but that 1*K nebula should certainly apply as a candidate for a Bose-Einstein Condensate for certain elements... (?)
thanks once more labguy, the posibilities get more interesting...
