That’s way too cold to operate a computer. Most computers don’t perform well below 35 degrees F.

@zenvelo I mean a quantum computer. They need to be chilled to about absolute zero temperature.

There would have to be some medium in space for the heat to transfer to, like water or air. A vacuum, like the vacuum of space, is what makes a thermos (vacuum) bottle so efficient.

It would burn up. The heat can’t dissipate in space.
