Absolute Zero presents the epic story of humanity's struggle to master extreme cold. This NOVA special recreates groundbreaking discoveries across four centuries that expanded our knowledge of low temperatures and led ultimately to today's cutting edge "cold technologies." The gripping story of the race between two leading chemists to liquefy helium and nitrogen opened the door to the modern era of refrigeration and modern air conditioning.

Very good video about the quest for absolute zero. Used it my physics class and it added to the concept of what absolute zero means. Good discriptions of the methods used.

Looking backward

By HS Science Teacher

Comments about PBS NOVA: Absolute Zero DVD:

This video was a great historical summary of the various people who explored the science of cold, and how several made them into commercial ventures that reshaped our world. However, it do not have anything on where we are now, or where we are headed in the future, in such related areas of supercooled conductors, how the properties of materials change as they are supercooled, and approaching absolute zero in the lab. Maybe a part 2?
