A Different Take On ‘Create a Vacuum Day’

A Different Take On ‘Create a Vacuum Day’

So here’s an odd one – today is “Create a Vacuum Day“!

Here’s what nationalwhateverday.com has to say:

Create a Vacuum Day is celebrated on February 4th of each year. In everyday usage, vacuum is a volume of space that is essentially empty of matter, such that its gaseous pressure is much less than atmospheric pressure. The word comes from the Latin term for “empty”. A perfect vacuum would be one with no particles in it at all, which is impossible to achieve in practice. Physicists often discuss ideal test results that would occur in a perfect vacuum, which they simply call “vacuum” or “free space”, and use the term partial vacuum to refer to real vacuum.

I have a particle-filled take on what “a perfect vacuum” is. Many people would now say that the ‘perfect vacuum’ is a wireless product like the Bissell cordless. The Bissell is still as portable as any wireless vacuum, but specialises in cleaning pet hair. Anyway, here are some of ideas of the perfect vacuum.
