SATELLITES FIND COLDEST SPOT ON EARTH


Satellites Find Coldest Spot on Earth

Scientists say a new record cold temperature on Earth has been recorded. On August 10, 2010, a spot inAntarctica dropped to a bitterly cold -135.8° F (-93.2° C). Previously, the coldest recorded temperature on Earthwas -128.6° F (-89.2° C), a reading taken on July 21, 1983, at Russia’s Vostok Station in Antarctica. The 2010 measurement was taken by satellite and, researchers say, is actually a preliminary figure. They expect that further examination of the data will yield a slightly colder final temperature reading. More… Discuss
