Trying To Eat Outside “Concordia Station” In Antarctica At -70ºC


Cyprien Verseux is a glaciologist and biologist, working on the most remote scientific base on Earth, in Concordia in Antarctica which is around 1,000 miles from the Geographical South Pole.

Cyprien Verseux tried to eat outside in Antarctica at -94ºF (-70ºC). These are the results…

Just for fun, Cyprien decided to go outside and have a go at “cooking,” taking photos of different kinds of foods in the deep freeze.


Of course, it was just a game, but the gravity-defying pictures vividly illustrate the absolute intensity of the cold down there in Antarctica.

Temperatures hardly rise above −25 °C in summer and can fall below −80 °C in winter with a recent record –84.6 °C in 2010. The annual average air temperature is −54.5 °C. Humidity is low and it is also very dry, with very little precipitation throughout the year.wikipwedia
