GEOGRAPHY IN THE NEWS:
Scientists recently reported finding the coldest spot on earth: a section of the East Antarctic ice sheet that registered -144°F. Because this area of East Antarctica is too cold and remote to be measured by scientists on the ground, the spot was identified by analyzing satellite data. This significantly exceeds the previously documented low temperature of -129°F (also in Antarctica) and is believed to be close to the minimum temperature possible on our planet. news.nationalgeographic.com/2018/06/coldest-place-earth-measured-temperature-antarctica-science
