Absolute ZERO! What could happen

  1. Jan 3, 2004 #1
    If absolute zero were actually attainable, what would happen? Would it began the collapse of the Universe? Or, would a gigantic explosion take place? What would be the effect on the surrounding matter? Does anyone have a Scientific plausability for this occurence? Is this another great unknown, that, pergaps we should stay away from?

    It is not attainable -- not in this universe anyway -- so the question is moot. It has no answer. It's like asking "if 1 was actually 2, what would happen to math?"
