London - In the northern hemisphere you may not want to leave the house without a hat and gloves right now, but at least you’re not in a place where your lungs, eyes and nose would freeze over in minutes.
That’s what would happen at the coldest spot on Earth, a windswept mountain ridge in Antarctica where temperatures can drop to -135.8F (-93.2C).
Scientists have discovered the spot – which is colder than Mars – thanks to a Nasa satellite, which recorded that temperature in August 2010 between Dome Argus and Dome Fuji at an altitude of 1 2795ft. The previous record of -128.6F (-89.2C) was at the Vostok Antarctic ice base in 1983. - Daily Mail
