Nasa to create ’coldest place in the universe’ on ISS


By Ian Steadman

The International Space Station isn’t just an expensive backdrop for music videos – it’s also a location for scientific experiments. Nasa is going to be making full use of its space laboratory 

The previous record for the coldest place in the universe (that wasn’t man-made) was held by the Boomerang Nebula, a young planetary nebula some 5,000 light years from Earth and discovered by the Hubble Space Telescope in 2003. At a temperature of -272oC, it was the first object found to be colder even than the background radiation from the Big Bang.
