Which is the coldest continent?

Which is the coldest continent? ‘Great God! this is an awful place,’ wrote the British explorer Captain Scott at the South Pole on January 17,1912. The average temperature at the South Pole is 500 C (580F) and the low temperatures in Antarctica are made worse by blizzards high winds that whip up powdery snow and reduce visibility to zero. The coldest weather ever recorded was at the Russian Vostok Station, east of the South Pole, in 1983. The thermometer, protected from the wind behind a screen, showed a temperature of 89.20 C (-128.60 F)!
