What is the coldest place in the world? It is a high ridge in Antarctica concerning the East Antarctic Plateau where temperatures in several hollows can dip under minus 133.6 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 92 degrees Celsius) in this area a sure winter night -- colder than the previous recorded low temperature.

Scientists at the National Snow and Ice Data Center made the discovery even if analyzing the most detailed global surface temperature maps to date, developed taking into consideration data from detached sensing satellites including the MODIS sensor upon NASA's Aqua satellite, and the TIRS sensor upon Landsat 8, a joint project of NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

The researchers analyzed 32 years of data from several satellite instruments that have mapped Antarctica's surface temperature. Near a high ridge that runs from Dome Arugs to Dome Fuji, the scientists found clusters of pockets that have plummeted to stamp album low temperatures dozens of era. The lowest temperature the satellites detected -- minus 136 F (minus 93.2 C), upon Aug. 10, 2010.

The added folder is several degrees colder than the previous low of minus 128.6 F (minus 89.2 C), set in 1983 at the Russian Vostok Research Station in East Antarctica. The coldest at all times inhabited place upon Earth is northeastern Siberia, where temperatures dropped to a bone-chilling 90 degrees out cold zero F (minus 67.8 C) in the towns of Verkhoyansk (in 1892) and Oimekon (in 1933).
