Cosmic entropy could be 100 times greater than previously thought
Pushing the cold frontier in an orderly fashion
Physicists are continually reaching new lows as they reduce the temperatures of samples in their laboratories. But even nano-kelvins are not low enough to overcome the entropy (a measure of the disorder in ...
