I thought we were talking about objects in a vacuum, and whether they could be hotter or colder than their surroundings. As you said earlier the vacuum itself doesn't really have a temperature, although strictly speaking the temperature of deep space is IIRC about 2.3K due to the background radiation, but of course objects within that space can be at any temperature you like just according to the balance of absorbed and emitted radiation. Very diffuse nebulae can have temperatures of millions of degrees as measured by various instruments even though they are close to a vacuum, in that case the temperature is an average measure of the speed of the ions atoms and molecules that make up the nebulae, some of those particles are travelling very fast indeed.


still a crazy old duffer!

Spot on Desp, you've hit the nail on the head. Smiley

Of course it'll work. (It hasn't caught fire yet).
