Scientists identify coldest place on earth

Scientists have identified what they believe to be the coldest place on earth.

The site, known simply as Ridge A, is nearly 14,000 metres high and is located deep within the Antarctic Plateau.

It has an average winter temperature of minus 94 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 70 degrees Celsius) and is so remote that it is thought that no human has ever set foot there.
