How cold is Antarctica?

Antarctica is so cold that in the open air the foods freeze in less than a minute much faster than in a freezer.

The French researcher Cyprien Verseux published photos of frozen meals at the temperatures of the South Pole.

Rigid spaghetti, crystallized honey, eggs suspended in mid-air: the foods remain immobilized by frost.

Verseux is part of the group of thirteen researchers who remained in isolation for the Antarctic winter in the Italian-French Concordia base, where the temperature is around -50 ° C.

Check out these amazing photos:
