A nice way to visualize this is based on Zeno's paradox. You are 1 meter from a door. Take a step forward that's half the remaining distance. You're 0.5m away. Do it again, you're 0.25m away, then 0.125m and so on. You can take as many steps as you want and get as arbitrarily close as you want but can never actually reach the door (of course you have verryyy tiny feet...Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!) Well, nothing can get to true absolute zero, but there are a few places where it's theorized to be just a degree or so above (inside giant molecular clouds). Scientists have gotten atoms to within 0.0001 or so degrees of absolute zero in the lab.
