Hi,

I would like to say that I am a huge fan of yours. You are on the cutting edge of science fiction and look forward to what you have to offer in the future. I have a serious question though. I read your books "Moving Mars" and "Heads" and was really interested in your ideas on a system's possibility on when absolute zero is achieved. I have been researching this quite a bit, and I was wondering if your idea was purely fictional or if you have some sources that I could read up on. I realize they are just fictional stories, but I like how you incorporate ideas of where science could go if it were able to cross the threshold.

Yours Truly,
Jonathan Nugent

Take a look at Bose-Einstein condensates. Here's the official web site: http://www.colorado.edu/physics/2000/bec/

And that's likely just the beginning!
