The East Antarctic Plateau is he coldest place in the world, and although various scientists had already cataloged it that waynow him NASA Goddard Space Flight Center confirms that this icy area of planet Earth has no comparison with temperatures up to -92.7 degrees Celsius.
This is what the coldest place in the world looks like, according to NASA!
The POT warned that the East Antarctic Plateauthe coldest place in the world recorded to date, is uninhabitable for human civilizations not only because of the frigid temperaturesbut because the geographical conditions do not allow settlements.
“Looking for the coolest place to spend the holidays? You won’t find anyone else there, but the coldest place we’ve found on Earth is a high ridge on the East Antarctic Plateau. On a clear winter night, temperatures can drop to minus 135 degrees F!”

This is known from the East Antarctic Plateau
The coldest place in the world is a high ridge in Antarctica on the East Antarctic Plateau. On a clear winter night, temperatures can drop to -93.2° Celsius. The coldest spots develop downslope from the ridge along a stretch of 997 kilometers between two peaks.
When weather conditions are right, the ridge cools as it radiates heat into space. This creates a layer of supercold air on the surface of the snow and the ice that accumulates in groups of pockets in the ice cap.
The scientists analyzed 32 years of satellite data, including measurements made by the Earth Observation Fleet of the POTand found that a record low was reached on August 10, 2010, although in 2018 temperatures of up to -98 degreesaccording to National Geographic.
The East Antarctic Plateau is located at 3,500 meters above sea level, about. Although there is no human presence, there is a great variety of polar species:
- Emperor penguin
- southern petrel
- Antarctic Giant Petrel
- snowy petrel
- Wilson’s Storm Petrel
- polar skua
- Antarctic petrel
According to the Argentine journalist John Paul Varskythe climatic conditions of the East Antarctic Plateauthe coldest place in the worldwould not allow heating methods to maintain a stable body temperature.
