What you're looking at is Valkyrie Dome, also known as Dome Fuji, on the East Antarctic Plateau. There is a ridge near these dark structures with hollows that go down to 133.6 degrees Fahrenheit—minus 92 degrees Celsius. A team of NASA and US Geological Survey scientists have now officially declared this ridge The Coldest Place On Earth.

The discovery was made after analyzing data gathered by the new Landsat 8 satellite along with 32 years of information accumulated by other spacecraft's weather instruments.

NASA says, "the new record of minus 136 F (minus 93.2 C) was set Aug. 10, 2010," which "is several degrees colder than the previous low of minus 128.6 F (minus 89.2 C), set in 1983 at the Russian Vostok Research Station in East Antarctica."
