    According to the article, it is a tidal locked planet, meaning that it has no "days" or rotation. So, the far side of the planet is around 50 degrees above above absolute 0 (So thats what? -275 celcius or something?) That side could be colonized. Sorta. Or rather, rape that side for metals and such. It is an earth density planet, so metals abound in the crust. Surely you could get some mining going on the planet. Not sure about cost feasibility though...

    Absolute zero is one of those fun things that's impossible to observe, because being able to observe it would mean that there's some amount of energy being bounced around, and thus it wouldn't be absolute zero.

    Look at it this way: you perceive colors because light is bouncing off the atoms of whatever you're looking at. If the atoms were completely at rest, you wouldn't be able to detect any light - but if there was any light being bounced around the atoms, then they wouldn't be completely at rest.

    Absolute zero is a situation when there is literally ZERO energy in an environment. To get a lower temperature would require the environment have negative energy which is completely impossible.

    The molten ocean of rock evaporates into the sky where it condenses into small pebbles, which begin rocking down to the surface of the planet, completing the rock cycle in its entirety.

    No doubt there are even metals and heavy metals that are carried along in this process, so there is possibly a metal cycle in addition the a rock cycle.

    I remember there was a planet on the Tiji sector that did something similar.

    Although I believe instead of molten rock rising and then falling, the planet's orbit was so strange that it caused part of the planet to rip off, including landmarks, would be ripped off the planet, orbit it for a bit, and then fall back to the planet at another point in the orbit.

    We rule-of-cooled that the rotation was so fast that rubbles was spun off of the planet and was later drawn back in by the heavy gravity, before the cycle was repeating over again, with gigantic rocks skipping all over the planet.
