Rafferty James Lindon, Elliott Keith Day, Christopher Philip Wallis, Joseph Keith Mayes, Massimiliano Favaro-Bedford


Russell's teapot is a hypothetical teapot floating in space between Earth and Mars. The maximum and minimum temperature of tea stored in this pot was found to be 277 K and 225 K respectively using the Stefan-Boltzmann law.
