Frozen Solid

Synopsis
The behaviour of matter at temperatures close to absolute zero is driving the advance of technology, from superconductors to quantum computing.
In this BBC documentary, physicist Dr Helen Czerski ventures to the bottom of the temperature scale, revealing how cold has shaped the world around us. She meets the scientists pushing temperature to the very limits of cold, where the normal laws of physics break down and a new world of scientific possibility begins. Episode 1 of 3 of the series From Ice to Fire: The Incredible Science of Temperature.
