Absolute Zero | A Sense of Scale By Glenn Elert Posted 01.08.08 NOVA At roughly minus 460°F, absolute zero is abysmally cold, yet at least we can imagine it. Being only a few hundred degrees below zero, it's in the realm of something we can put our minds around. This is not true of the opposite of absolute zero, the theoretical highest possible temperature. Launch Interactive Travel from absolute zero to what may be the highest temperature of all. This feature originally appeared on the site for the NOVA program Absolute Zero.

grimmtmp from This book contains 209 tales collected by the brothers Grimm. The exact print source is unknown. The etext appears to be based on the translation by Margaret Hunt called Grimm's Household Tales, but it is not identical to her edition.
