So I work in a pretty awesome lab, and I did my best to recreate it here. I'm happy to explain any of the equipment!

...tell me about the freezer which gets colder than space...it sounds intruiging. What's it used for? Making the most epic popsicles ever?

...no? Oh. I suspected not.

Have you heard of liquid nitrogen? Instead, we use liquid helium! Outer space is roughly 2.7 Kelvins (wayyyy below zero in Celsius or Fahrenheit), but our freezer gets all the way down to .5 Kelvins. (Liquid nitrogen is positively toasty by comparison, at 77 Kelvins.)

We use it to cool metals down enough to start superconducting, which means electricity can flow through without getting slowed down or stopped.

Ooh, I googled this and turns out that it looks kind of like water...?

What would happen if someone touched it, though, since it's super cold? Would their arm just freeze up instantly?
My my, I am being a little morbid with my questions.

Oh man, that's a pretty good theme for your gallery Jasmine! I love wearing those wildfire shades in the optics labs; I always feel so stylish.
