Is it New York City? Perhaps Toronto? Hong Kong? London? Well, it's not London, England, as cool as fish and chips, Chelsea FC and the Queen may be. It's not Hong Kong, either, no matter how many shopping districts and diners you may find open at 4 a.m.
The coolest on place on earth, in the entire world is in fact -- a desert. Huh?
Here we go:
1) Vostok Station and Plateau Station, Antarctica
How Cool? Vostok: -128.6°F or -89.2°C and Plateau: -119.2°F or -84°C
Antarctica is considered the coolest or coldest place on earth, inhabited only by seals, penguins and scientists for half of the year. It's also considered a desert (the largest desert in the world!) because it has little precipitation (just less than the Sahara) -- even though it's completely covered by massive amounts of ice.
The records of the coldest temperatures in the world were taken at the Vostok and Plateau Science Laboratory Stations on Antarctica. The "coolest place" award goes to Vostok Station where the temperature reached -128.6°F or -89.2°C on July 21, 1983.
2) Oymyakon and Verkhoyansk, Russia
How Cool? Oymyakon: -96.0°F or -71.1°C and Verkhoyansk: -89.8°F or -67.7°C
Siberia is in fact the coldest inhabited place in the world. Oymyakon village found in Eastern Siberia, has a population of 900 and an average temperature of -96°F or -71.2°C during the winter that lasts nine months. This region is so cold that if you take out an empty plastic bag outside, it will freeze in minutes and shatter like glass. Children are not allowed to play outside for more than 20 minutes during a winter day -- to keep their lungs from freezing!
Verkhoyansk is located near the Arctic Circle and had a population of 1,434 in 2002. They have a river port, airport and fur-collecting depot. It is also a centre for raising reindeer (for Santa, no doubt).
3) North Ice Station and Eismitte, Greenland
How Cool? North Ice: -86.8°F or -66°C and Eismitte: -84.8°F or -64.9°C
Both recording of these temperatures at North Ice Station and Eismitte were on expeditions made by European scientists and explorers in the 1930s (Eismitte) and the 1950's (North Ice). Both were made on Greenland's inland. At Eismitte, researchers spent a 12 month period from September 1930 to August 1931 recording temperatures. July was the warmest month at an average monthly temperature of 10°F and -12.2°C. The coldest month was February at -53°F or -47.2°C.
4) Snag in Yukon, Canada
How Cool? -81.4°F or -63°C
The small village of Snag, Yukon takes the record for the coldest temperature in North America to have ever been recorded and was February 3, 1947. The village is located just south of Beaver Creek, Yukon and is located in a valley. This village was settled during the Klondike Gold Rush in the late 1800s. In the mid 1900's, only approximately 10 natives lived here along with fur traders.
5) Prospect Creek, Alaska, United States
How Cool? -79.8°F or -62.1°C
Prospect Creek is located just 25 miles southeast from Bettles, Alaska. It was at a pipeline camp in January 23, 1971 that this record was taken at -79.8°F or -62.1°C. It is considered the United States' lowest recorded temperature.

Do you live at a place with much hustle and bustle? You think your city is getting too populated?
Sounds awkward, right? That’s the kind of extra-terrestrial chat on the internet about buying land on the Moon, something US-headquartered Lunar Embassy claims it first initiated.
It’s yet uncertain whether the statement is true or not, the company is selling and registering property on the Moon for the past 29 years. The website lets you know every step and detail regarding your Real Estate Purchase on moon. It also justifies itself that it’s not fraud!!!
It also claims it’s the only company to possess a legal basis and copyright for the sale of lunar and other extra-terrestrial property in the solar system. The organization claims it has over 3,470,072 members.
So, how did Lunar Embassy get the right to own, sell and register land on the Moon? A declaration of ownership was filed with the United Nations as well as the US and Russian governments 29 years ago by Dennis M Hope of the Lunar Embassy to ensure a legal basis for ownership of properties sold on the moon. No country has contested that claim or declaration.
Though the international Moon Treaty, finalized in 1979 and in force since 1984, forbids private ownership of extra-terrestrial real estate, as of January 1, 2008 only 13 states ratified the agreement and more importantly not a single country has legally contested Lunar Embassy’s claims to ownership of Moon land. Thus, anyone who made the first claim before the UN becomes the first owner. Lunar Embassy says it made the first claim and so it is the rightful owner of lunar property.
There’s another fact that Lunar Embassy is banking on. Although the Outer Space Treaty, which came into force in 1967 forbids countries from claiming celestial bodies, there apparently is no provision forbidding private individuals from doing so. In 1996, the company set up its website, the MoonShop, “the first Internet website ever to be selling properties on any extraterrestrial body”.
