 WASHINGTON (AP) — Feeling chilly? Here's cold comfort: You could be in East 
Antarctica which new data says set a record for "soul-crushing" cold.
 Try 135.8 degrees Fahrenheit below zero; that's 93.2 degrees below zero 
Celsius, which sounds only slightly toastier. Better yet, don't try it. That's 
so cold scientists say it hurts to breathe.
 A new look at NASA satellite data revealed that Earth set a new record for 
coldest temperature recorded. It happened in August 2010 when it hit -135.8 
degrees. Then on July 31 of this year, it came close again: -135.3 degrees.
 The old record had been -128.6 degrees, which is -89.2 degrees Celsius.
 Ice scientist Ted Scambos at the National Snow and Ice Data Center said the 
new record is "50 degrees colder than anything that has ever been seen in 
Alaska or Siberia or certainly North Dakota."
