What Is Kelvin?
Astronomers generally adopt the Kelvin temperature scale, named after Lord (William Thompson) Kelvin, a 19th century Scottish physicist and mathematician. A difference of one degree on the Kelvin (K) scale is the same as for the Celsius (or centigrade) scale. However, the zero-point is defined to be absolute zero, the coldest possible temperature and the point where atomic and molecular motion ceases. [There are no negative temperatures, or readings "below zero," on the Kelvin scale.] Note that no degree symbol (°) is used for the Kelvin scale.
