[2-6-2022] Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz Question: Oymyakon has a strong claim to being the northern ‘Pole of Cold.’ What’s that?
The given options are:
- Coldest place on Earth
- Site of the coldest-known metal pole
- Coldest place in the Northern Hemisphere
Correct Answer: Coldest place in the Northern Hemisphere
Info: Centuries of evolving meteorological technology means some historic cold-temp records are considered more accurate than others. Oymyakon’s claim may be strongest: The Siberian town has a verified low-temperature record of minus 89.9 degrees Fahrenheit set in 1933—though if local lore and a Soviet-era monument are accurate, the true record low was notched a decade earlier at minus 96.2.
