Can I ask another question? You would need to make something colder than absolute zero to reach absolute zero. This is PHYSICALLY impossible, since nothing in t
I'd say they can't get molecules to stop so no absolute zero just off the top of my head...
Correct. And that was the common knowledge part. Atoms obey the laws of Quantum Mechanics, NOT the laws of physics. Since atoms can never stop vibrating, they will always have some heat energy left(point energy). The second part is, that once you remove all the heat energy from a system, there will be no more energy left to remove. But it would take an infinite amount of work to remove all the energy from the system. Since we can't provide an infinite amount of work to remove all the energy, we can't reach absolute zero.


Your question?

That material would also radiate IR.
I agree with you. Every form of matter with a temperature above absolute zero will emit infrared radiation. Poor insulation was just not one of the 2 answers I was looking for. I was looking for either the thermodynamic answer, or the quantum answer. The small amount of IR emitted would be corrected and compensated for during the experiment.

DDH gave the correct quantum answer. Since matter exist in a dual state(particle and wave), even if we could stop its particle properties, we couldn't stop its wave properties(uncertainty principle). And, vise versa. This is why as we near absolute zero, we see such weird states of matter compensating against our efforts. We see atoms becoming a visible "super atom". We see gases becoming Superfluid(no frictional resistance), and materials becoming Superconductors(no electrical resistance).

When I watched that movie it did strike me as odd...that she was (in real life) just a kid. Have no idea other than that.

Same with Lolita.
That is true. Jodie was only 12 years old at the time. The question was WHO was her body double, and WHY did she need a body double? The hint is, I didn't ask you for a name. Secondly, if you've watched the movie, you should know WHY she would need a BODY double.

Thought the Lolita reference covered the 'why.'

Sorry, I didn't know what your reference meant. If you meant that Foster was too young to do explicit scenes, then you are correct to the why. Now, who was her body double? Hint: It was a member of her family(and it wasn't her mother).

The answer is, it was her 19 year old sister(Connie). She did the explicit scenes.

My final questions is, after John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln, what was the name of the building he escaped from on horseback?

Yeah I know it was a Theatre.. also I know Kennedy was not born yet. Good grief :roll Nobody else ever called Kennedy.?

No it is a name ..
I just can't quite remember

Okay, another very famous woman died the same day as Princess Diana. So famous was she that on any other day, she would have been front page news but as a result of the coincidence, got shuffled back a page or three.

Princess Diana had a very famous photograph taken with this woman.

Who was she?
