Hmmm. So we actually haven’t measured all the places in the Universe, but you assume that Mother Nature or a superior alien race does not have hotter or colder temps than your lab.

That attitude is referred to as Hubris and simple probability math shows that you are almost certainly incorrect.
He said solar system.

Well, there isn't anything colder than absolute zero. We do know that. And we're pretty sure there's an upper limit to how hot something can get before it ceases to be matter. We're a long way from that. In the US, we have hit a billion degrees. The Russians say they have hit 3-billion, but no one has seen it happen. In reality, these temps are never seen.

Again, hubris.

Based on mankind’s limited understanding of the universe you think you know, but in reality your confidence level should be close to zero that your arrogant statement is correct.

The truth is out there, but not so much here. In a million years they will look back at us and laugh at our stupidity, unless our hubris kills us all first.

Well, they probably will get a laugh at the one of us who doesn’t understand what’s goi g on at absolute zero.

If we’re still around, right or wrong, I’ll buy you a beer.

The thing is: your assertion of hubris would be correct if I were to say something like, “Einstein’s Theories of Special and General Relativity are proven fact.” Or indeed if I made that assertion about any other theory. Even as successful as Einstein’s theories are, they are still, and always will be, subject being proven wrong. And there’s a bunch of folks trying to do that.

Absolute zero is a constant. There may be some other surprises waiting for us to trip over them on how to get to it. But if it happens, the measurement of it will still stop at absolute zero.

Constellation Virgo!
Answers the nerdy science question with an answer that literally translates into "constellation virgin"... If you are correct I think Snover may have set you up.

Actually I just realized my post was even worse.
