Can absolute zero stop time?
Question Date: 2011-07-27
Answer 1:

Absolute zero is a point in which atoms and molecules are not moving. This doesn't prevent light from shining, and if your absolute zero object is gliding silently through space, it will keep on going until it runs into something (which will move the temperature above absolute zero when it does).
