Now That's Cold!

The coldest spot on Earth is at the Vostok Ice Station in Antartica, where in 1989 the temperature was measured to be -128.6 F (-89.2 C). At that temperature, water would freeze before hitting the ground when poured from table height. To the other extreme, a high temperature of +136 F (57.8 C) was recorded in El Azizia, Libya, in 1922. At an altitude of 50 miles above the two equators, temps of -220 F (-140 C) are common. In the Earth's inner core, temps can reach +13,000 F (7,200 C), which is hotter that the surface of the sun.
