How cold can it get
« on: December 11, 2013, 08:06:47 AM »

Or Global Warming?

How cold does it get on the surface of the planet?

Today's APOD http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/

is a Satellite photo of the south pole.

On it they talk about the coldest temps they have recorded not at, but very close to, the pole.

Previous record low as on 21-July-1983 and was -89.2C or -126.6F

The new records...

10-August 2010 they measured -93.2C (-135.8F)

And on 31-July-2013 it hit -93.0C (-135.3F)

For those interested in such things, -40 is the C/F crossover temp and one I consider entierly TOO COLD.

Today is 11-Dec-2013,  If you are viewing this at a later date click on the link, scroll to near the bottom where it says Calendar and then clilck through to 2013, December, 11th.
