The temperature on earth can be from one extreme to another extreme - something some donuts use to excuse their ignorance when it comes to global climate change. And it also depends a lot on a year. But what's the coldest place in earth and how cold is it?

The coldest place on Earth, according to satellite data, is Antarctica's eastern plateau where the minimum temperature can go as low as minus 144 Fahrenheit, which translates to roughly -98 Celsius. And you thought your -40 Celsius Canadian winter might have been a cold one. The study about it was published earlier this week.

For the temperature to go that low, several requirements have to be met, such as clear skies, light winds, and also extremely dry air.

Ted Scambos, the study's lead author, said that "In this area, we see periods of incredibly dry air, and this allows the heat from the snow surface to radiate into space more easily."

While the lowest temperature based on satellite data is now nearly -100 degrees Celsius, the ground weather stations haven't been able to measure that low temperatures anywhere, as the weather stations can't measure weather everywhere. The lowest air temperature ever measured by a weather station is -89 degrees Celsius (around -128 degrees Fahrenheit). That was is Russia, in Vostok, some 25 years ago.
