In 1.1 billion years, the Sun will grow 11% brighter, raising average terrestrial temperatures to around 50 °C (120 °F). That will warm the oceans so much that they evaporate without boiling...It would be a big job, and would take plenty of patience to move the Earth consistently outwards as the Sun grew warmer...

 Earth Sun temperature orbit Solar System future
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment has once again become one of the coldest places in the Universe. All eight sectors of the LHC have now been cooled to their operating temperature of 1.9 kelvin (-271C; -456F) - colder than deep space.

By smashing gold particles together at super-fast speeds, physicists have basically melted protons, creating a kind of "quark soup" of matter that is about 250,000 times hotter than the center of the sun and similar to conditions just after the birth of the universe.Scientists reported in 2005 that they suspected they had created this unique state of matter, but for the first time they have verified that the extreme temperatures...

 Big Bang proton neutron quark gluon temperature liquid universe
While physicists struggle to get quantum computers to function at cryogenic temperatures, other researchers are saying that humble algae and bacteria may have been performing quantum calculations at life-friendly temperatures for billions of years. The evidence comes from a study of how energy travels across the light-harvesting molecules involved in photosynthesis. The work has culminated this week in the extraordinary announcement that...

 LHC Big Bang temperature physics
If I were a con artist, I’d get in the habit of buying people warm drinks. If that didn’t work, I’d start conducting my con in warm rooms, or maybe move to a tropical region. Why? Because fleeting feelings of heat increase our willingness to trust strangers. That, at least, is the conclusion of a clever new paper from the Bargh lab, which measured the effect of temperature on interpersonal interactions. It’s yet another reminder that even...

Over a 1000-km run, superconducting cables can carry far more power than cables of a comparable size. Even taking into account the energy required to cool them, they lose just a third as much energy in transmission. Just as in the case of optical fibres, the technology has been quietly refined over the years and in some senses is ready to be deployed. This will be costly at first, but with tangible benefits that the wider market may just...
