What is the Coldest Place In The Universe?


The Boomerang Nebula is a cosmic refrigerator with a mind-numbing temperature of -272°C (-521.6°F). Pack your thermals - it's officially the coldest place in the universe! The freezing cold spot is made from a dust and gas cloud thrown off by a dying star, which astronomers call a "white dwarf". It's so cold because the center of the Nebula is forced to expand further and faster, as the dying planet sheds more and more cosmic junk.
