Ok... I got this from my new Guiness book, food for thought
The data (From lowest to highest)
450 picokelvin- ARTIFICIAL, created at MIT
-89.2C- Natural, Antarctica
-37.5C- Natural, coldest water croplets
14.2C- Natural, lowest body temperature
15C- Natural, mean temperature on Earth
49.2C- Natural- Highest temperature on Earth
480C- Natural, surface temperatuer of Venus
3414C- Natural, Melting point- tungsten
5867C- Natural, Boiling point- tungsten
200,000C- Natural, Hottest White Dwarf
15,600,000C- Natural, Center of the sun
2,000,000,000C- ARTIFICIAL, Made by the Z-Machine in Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM, USA
INFINITE DEGREES- NATURAL, Temperature of the big bang.
The first and last two stunned me, artifical 2billion degrees and almost absolute zero? INFINITY!??!
Infinity :S... i hate that word, doesn't make sense at all. How can temperature be infinite? I suppose they could predict that it's googol degrees
celsius but... they can't just say that it's infinite.
450 picokelvin is believable...
2bil C seems a bit extreme, that's like 150 times the center of the Sun.
