NASA's Cold Atom Laboratory, a facility for fundamental physics experiments on the International Space Station, recently underwent a major hardware upgrade with the help of astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir.

The Coolest Experiment in the Universe

What's the coldest place you can think of? Temperatures on a winter day in Antarctica dip as low as −120ºF (−85ºC). On the dark side of the Moon, they hit −280ºF (−173ºC). But inside NASA's Cold Atom Laboratory on the International Space Station, scientists are creating something even colder.

NASA researchers plan to create the coldest spot in the known Universe--inside the International Space Station. The device, known as the Cold Atom Lab, could discover new forms of matter and novel quantum phenomena.
