“For the first ten thousand years of recorded history, civilization progressed by means of ever greater control of heat. In the 20th century, for the first time, progress came about through control of the cold. As we enter the 21st
century, the present direction and volume of research and applications promise that tomorrow’s technological advances, and many of tomorrow’s discoveries about the composition of matter and the nature of the universe, will be made in the vicinity of absolute zero, and will be based on our increasing mastery of cold.”
