Coldest place on Earth discovered

19 posts in this topic

Scientists have discovered the coldest place on Earth - where the air temperature plummets to below -91C.

The newly-found spot - situated along an Antarctic mountain ridge - could freeze a human's eyes, nose and lungs within minutes.

Wow, I didn't realize it got that cold on earth. Where I used to live I saw temperatures of -50C, and I thought that was God-awful. Can't imagine how this would feel.

Rubbish.......! The coldest spots on this planet (and probably any other) are Mrs.Ealdwita's feet in bed!

I can vouch for that!

It's been minus 50º F here before. .. that makes it around 700 degrees below in my van in the morning. Actually, most vehicles won't start that cold.

According to Wiki, the freezing point of CO2 is -78.5 C, so your answer is yes, unless other conditions might somehow prevent that.

And all this time I thought the coldest place on earth was inside my ex-wife's heart. :whistle:

I suppose that makes the average Martian temperature of -50C relatively balmy.

Is that static temperature? I wonder if the wind chill factor could bump it even lower? :blink:

At that, it barely edged out Oymyakov, Russia by only half a degree. That town has held the record since 1933!

Moscow, IDAHO got a -48 degrees C. in 1969. Down here in Oklahoma, we had some -40s in 1886 - that's OUR all-time record.
