technically it would be 0 K, not 0 degrees K.

Thank you, peterkein. You are “absolutely” right! The degree symbols were erroneously (albeit occasionally) added to the Kelvin scale, and I’ve removed them. — Dinshaw Dadachanji

Gravity has yet to be defined. By observation, “Gravity is the manifestation of thermal mass in motion”. With this definition gravity goes to zero as the temperature of a body goes to zero. Gravity going to zero also accounts for superconductivity at temperatures near absolute zero as the gravitational field between atoms and electrons becomes small. There are numerous other examples of this effect. The characterization also explains the electromagnetic interaction of gravity with light.
