Antarctica – The Coldest continent

Antarctica, the land of penguins, is the coldest continent on earth. The average temperature there is -49 C and the lowest temperature ever recorded on earth, -89 C, was recorded at the Russian Base Vostok in Antarctica in 1983.

One of the reasons why Antarctica is so cold is that the continent’s permanent reflects about 80% of the suns radiation. This means that only 20% of the energy from the sun is absorbed.

Another reason why Antarctica is so cold is its location over the Earth’s South pole. How much heat an area receives from the sun depends on whether the sun is overhead or not. This is why it is always hot near equator. Because the Earth’s surface curves at the poles, the sun’s rays are spread over a wide area and so temperatures are almost always below zero. In fact, it is so cold here that no human beings live in Antarctica, except for the most dedicated scientists.

Deserts become very cold at night

You know the deserts are very hot places, but did you know that they can become very cold at night? The sky above a desert is usually very clear. So during the day, the ground absorbs most of the sunlight that strikes it, heating the surrounding air.

At night the reverse happens. Since there are no clouds over a desert to trap the heat, the land gives off heat rapidly, and it becomes very chilly. In fact, though daytime temperatures in the desert average 38 c, in some deserts it can get down to -4 c at night.

Why are some people left handed?

About four percent of the population is left-handed. In the course of history, many of the greatest geniuses have also been left-handed. Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, the greatest sculptors of all times were both left-handed.

The brain has a right half and a left half, and these two do not function in the same way. It is believed that the left hand of the brain is predominant over the right half.

This being the case, the right half of the body is more skilled and better able to do things. We read, write, speak, and work with the left half of our brain. And this, of course, makes most of us right-handed too. But in the case of left-handed people, it works the other way around.

The right half of the brain is predominant, and such a person works best with the left side of his body.
