Scientists have managed to create the world's smallest nano-fridge. However, as of now, they aren’t your regular refrigerators to store eggs and milk.

These tiny devices are a prototype to cool computers and thermoregulate fiber-optic networks. A similar device has been powering NASA’s Voyager spacecraft for four decades.
