A system at absolute zero has no energy therefore entropy = 0

as fish has already said, the zero point energy from something in its ground state makes absolute zero unattainable in the real world

theoretically, the particles would not have any thermal energy and not be able to vibrate, meaning it would be perfectly ordered and have 0 entropy
