Love the blackness where the weather icon usually is. No sun, no clouds, no lightning bolt. So perfect.

Uh oh. Am I one of those people who goes onto comments sections to point out factual inaccuracies on tee shirts?

Oh no, I am! Please help!

Technically, space has no temperature, not absolute zero. Temperature is a property of matter, and there is no (or very little) matter in open space.

Despite what is shown in some movies, if you were released into space, you wouldn't instantly freeze to death. In fact, you'd stay roughly the same temperature. If space had a temperature of 0 Kelvin, spacecraft would need to generate massive amounts of heat just to keep astronauts alive and machinery functioning. But since there is no wind, etc., to carry away excess energy, finding a way to dissipate heat is a big challenge for the space program.

Is it just me or is this shirt trying to say that space is a constant 3.15 Kelvin?

You sir, just made me desist from buying this shirt... I don't want to be pointed out and mocked at as a living billboard of scientific inaccuracies.

Hope tomorrow they have a scientifically accurate t-shirt of a cat dressed in a ninja costume.

Haha, I'm so glad you posted this cause when I saw the shirt was titled "always accurate" I felt obligated to do it myself. I try not to get pedantic about t-shirts but if you love/are interested in space this shirt is maaaaybe not the best way to show it.

Well, yes and no.
First, it's the weather report for Deep Space, not space near a star like The Sun.
If NASA was doing manned work a couple of lightyears out, they would be more worried about keeping enough heat inside.

And any mass out there will have a temperature tending towards 3.5K. Your thermometer will constantly report its temperature dropping as it radiates away heat.

I am slightly disappointed that there isn't a report of atmospheric pressure. Low, but not QUITE zero.

Well, sure. But dark matter, by definition, doesn't play by the same rules as "regular" matter. for instance, exhibitibg a temperature.

that's what I was wondering; was it really that hard to report the actual value for absolute zero, or is this a miraculously homogenous portion of space we are talking about?

I agree - you would constantly be radiating energy away getting colder and colder. We had to do thermal heat equations like this in heat transfer class for satellites. I was actually quite interesting.

But deep space isn't absolute zero...it sits at a out 3 K, the temperature of the cosmic background radiation. Anything that gets colder than that will be warmed up by the microwave radiation that permeates the universe.

Space does have a temperature, even without significant matter. It's the equilibrium temperature things (like a thermometer) will reach if left to radiate their heat away long enough. And that, as above, is equal to the temperature of the cosmic microwave background, about 3 K, or -270 °C.

THANK YOU! I was looking for this reply! Space does have a temeprature, 2.7 Kelvin (the shirt is rounding to ~ 3 Kelvin). The Microwave background radiation ensures that space always has a temperature. As cosmic expansion redshifts this background radiation, the universe cools, though I'd say this shirt gives an accurate forcast for the next few hundred million years.

So if you're worried about being criticisized for the accuracy of this shirt, you can smuggly outnerd your critic and tell them that no, deep space does in fact have a temperature, and no, it is not absolute zero, it is the temperature of the cosmic microwave background radiation.

Hmm, my first thought is that you have an odd interpretation of rip-off. But given that this design has little correlation to that Alderaan design, perhaps you are trying to get people to purchase from the other site?.....

Objectively, this design does not rely upon a Star Trek relationship, so it might appeal to a wider population. And who knows what the sales might've done with a police box in the corner.....
