worldatlas.com

The South Pole is the coldest place on the globe. Yep, you read that right! The coldest place on earth! The warmest temperature ever recorded in the South Pole was a freezing -12.3 degrees Celsius. Now that is cold! The South Pole is located on Antarctica, which is one of

the Earth’s seven continents. According to the National Geographic, even though land at the South Pole is only about a hundred meters above sea level, the ice sheet above it is only 9,000 feet thick. This makes the South Pole more elevated than the North Pole which makes it even colder. Can you imagine being that cold 24/7?
