What does it mean when we say that 0 Kelvin is absolute zero?

Absolute zero is the lowest limit of the thermodynamic temperature scale and its equal to 0 K or -273.15°C.

It means super-duper cold. 0 Kelvin, or absolute zero, is a temperature that we can never actually reach (limit).

When would there ever be a situation in which there is zero Kelvin?
