0K or -273.15°C is the theoretical lower limit of temperature.

Absolute zero is the name given to this point. It is the temperature at which no more heat can be removed from a substance.

William Thomson, Lord Kelvin (1824 – 1907) developed the concept of ‘absolute zero’ and proposed a temperature scale starting at this point. This scale, named in his honour is the Kelvin temperature scale.
