The other popular Spring engine mods had pretty descriptive names like BA. How did the name Zero-K originate?

The temperature of the cosmic background radiation is somewhere around 3K. So wherever there is a lower temperature in the universe, there is probably a technological civilization.

Explain pls.

Edit: You mean that a temperature lower than 3 degrees Kelvin can only be achieved in a controlled environment?

Yes, e.g. by liquifying helium. On the other hand, low temperatures can also appear naturally under rare circumstances such as black holes. Sagittarius A* for example should have a temperature in the fK regime. Therefore, low temperatures have also been called "singularities in the universe".

They told someone to think of a name and he said ok. But they thought the o was a zero.

I think it means you build and you go from 0 to 1000 resources fast. You start with ZERO no resources. Then as you build your at 1,000 now and That's what Zero-K means to me.
