History[edit]

Sad to see such a core science article in such poor condition. History of temperature measurement would deserve a big key article by itself! This here is so stubby now that the reader is forced to just follow links to obvious main aspects, and left with no comparative/integrated guide. It would be particularly interesting to the general reader to have a lot of description of the history of the relationship between the competing F and C scales.-73.61.15.226 (talk) 15:11, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

Precision, accuracy, and reproducibility limits[edit]

The Temperature measurement article currently has little content about the maximum accuracy of current technology for measuring temperature. The Thermometer article currently has quite impressive relevant content, but even though it offers much general discussion, does not really explore the limits of the most sensitive tech. There is a link to a Precision thermometry article but it does not seem to currently exist, it just redirects. Please add content to these articles, about the Precision, accuracy, and reproducibility limits of the most sensitive equipment and techniques. There have been references in the media to measuring temps near absolute zero to many digits, but that probably only applies to that special case. What other temps can be measured most accurately?-73.61.15.243 (talk) 23:08, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
