The lowest temperature on Earth
The laurels of the coldest places on Earth is Antarctica, here in the 83 year of the last century was a record — 89,2 °C. This result was recorded by Soviet scientists who were on the research station.
This record lasted until 2013, in the month of December scientists have recorded the temperature -91,2 °C. according to the publication The Daily Mail, under such weather conditions, a person may stiffen and eyes, and lungs. Is the process of freezing is not more than a couple minutes.
The coldest place on the planet
The temperature at which the carbon dioxide turn into dry ice, whether it is 13°below was recorded at an altitude of over 3700 meters of ice on top of Fuji, located in the East of the Queen Maud Land.
The lowest temperature recorded in Antarctica and throughout the world were documented by scientists from America. Moreover, meteorologists say that close to a cold place can be a land where the temperature is even lower.
The coldest continent of the planet Earth is obligated by their harsh conditions of geographical position. These places hardly ever seen the shining light that stands high in the sky – here six-month polar day changes six-month polar night. A day here lasted almost a year, which repeatedly, you can see the sunrise and sunset, the heavenly bodies.
Antarctica is located in the fetters of eternal cold, slanting sun rays are not able to cope with a big ice shell. It is not surprising that it is noted here that the lowest temperature on the planet. In addition, there are frequent winds up to 90 meters per second, and there is very little rainfall.
Flora and fauna are very scarce – are growing on the mainland, only mosses and lichens, occasionally you can find a single flowering plant. On the coast of Antarctica feel at ease Navy seals and penguins.
Antarctica is the only place where is not found a home. Moreover, these ice massifs do not belong to any nation located on the planet, and are considered the common heritage.
In Antarctica constantly research activity currently operates thirty-seven stations. Working in conditions of severe climate about three thousand people. It is known that the climate of Antarctica strongly resembles the Martian weather conditions.
If you go on a tour of the coldest places on the planet, no visit to Greenland can not do. This largest island located in the waters of the Arctic and Atlantic oceans. Local residents will not surprise the average February temperature is -47 degrees Celsius. If will melt all the waters of this island, the ocean level will rise by seven meters.
The next point of our route – the capital of Yakutia. It is the most populous city of North-Eastern Russia. In Yakutsk, there are two hundred and fifty thousand people. If you calculate the average temperature for the year, we get a figure of -10 degrees.
Average temperature mid-winter – 41, the lowest temperature was recorded at the level of 64 °C. it’s Amazing how local people could adapt to given climatic conditions. At a temperature of -30 the city’s population is not even shivered.
The lowest temperature in the universe
It would be logical to assume that the lowest temperature may be somewhere in the universe. However, what on Earth managed to achieve sverhdorogoy temperature is 0.1 PC. Of course, this event can be equated to the outstanding achievements of mankind. These studies are to mankind are enormous practical significance. Before scientists discover the secrets of superconductivity, guessing that scientists will lead humanity to a new stage of development.
