The Boomerang Nebula - The Coldest Region of the UniverseIn this letter, we report such observations of the Boomerang Nebula which show it to be a unique object, consisiting of an ultra-cold and extremely massive molecular envolope, expanding at very high speed. The extreeme physical characteristics of the Boomerang Nebula reported here have never been seen before in any AGB or post-AGB object, and should spur new theoretical and obesrvational efforts to understand the nature of the mass-loss processes occurring during later stellar evolution.
