Antarctica :: The Coldest Place on Earth

The Ross Ice Shelf at the Bay of Whales.
Antarctica

Antarctica is the coldest place on the earth. The only other places that come even close to being this chilly are a few areas in Russia. The coldest place on earth is also the loneliest. There aren't any locals and anybody who drops in doesn't stay for long. Some animals, like penguins, can be found along the coast of Antarctica, but none live inland on the continent. Read on about this chilly destination!

Antarctica - The Coldest Place on Earth

It's not just the boat ride across one of the most treacherous seas in the world that keep people from moving to Antarctica. It's hard to get to, there's little food and nothing to build shelter from. People haven't lived in Antarctica for thousands of years. However, today's technology has made it possible for people to explore and study the huge walk-in freezer. The coldest temperature ever recorded was -129 Fahrenheit (-89 Celsius). Antarctica has little moisture so it's also known as one of the driest places in the world.

Antarctica - A Scientist's Dream

Scientists have come from all over the word to study Antarctica. Some have even been brave enough to live in Antarctica for part of the year. Few people stay longer than six months. The sun rises and sets only once a year out here. That means there are six months of daylight and then six months of darkness. During the winter there is no sun and it takes a lot more than a fire and wool socks to keep you warm. It's no wonder nobody lives in these extremes.

Where's the coldest place you've ever been?
