St.Helena - a remote island in the Atlantic | (Travel Documentary) DW Documentary

Every third week, a British Royal Mail ship begins its journey from Cape Town to Saint Helena, the remote island in the Atlantic where Napoleon was once in exile. It’s like the end of the world in the middle of the Atlantic. Five days, with a northwesterly course, and only then do the sheer black cliffs appear in front of RMS St. Helena. The island’s 45000 residents are often waiting impatiently for the ship’s arrival and panic if the schedule changes. Director Thomas Denzel and his team went on the journey to Saint Helena and met the people living on the island. Many of the residents are descendants of people who were sent into exile there by the British crown - the most famous among them, the French Emperor Napoleon. This is a report about life at the end of the world, loneliness, unique vegetation, and a very special journey. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

13 Coldest Places in The World

From the cute towns of Idaho, to the most inhospitable parts of Antarctica, these are 13 COLDEST Places in the World ! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 7. Oymyakon, Russia This little town in Russia has been officially identified as one of the two coldest places on Earth that are regularly inhabited with the other one being the previously mentioned town of Verkhoyansk. There’s only around 500 citizens that are crazy enough to endure such harsh winter temperatures. Because of where the village is positioned, a day will only get 21 hours in June while a day in December only gets 3 hours. The lowest temperature that ever occurred here was back in 1924 when the temperature dropped to a frigid negative 71.2 degrees Celsius or negative 96 degrees Fahrenheit. 6. Denali, Alaska This mountain in Alaska, formerly known as Mount McKinley, happens to be the highest mountain peak in all of North America thanks to its summit elevation of 6,190 meters or 20,310 feet above sea level. The reason that the mountain range was formerly called McKinley was because a gold prospector named it after the presidential candidate William McKinley as part of his support. It was changed in 2015 to Denali which is what the native people refer to it as. It’s also considered to be the coldest mountain on earth. The air temperature here usually falls to be around negative 40 degrees Celsius which is also the same in Fahrenheit. 5. Yakutsk, Russia This Russian city happens to be the capital of the Sakha Republic where an estimated population of around 300,000 people live. Here, the weather gets drastically cold enough to where the average temperature for the city’s winters is around negative 34 degrees Celsius or negative 29.2 degrees Fahrenheit. This is considered to be the coldest city of its size or greater in the entire world. In the following image, we see just how bundled the citizens have to be in order to just walk outside as this woman walks across a snow covered bridge. 4. The Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station This United States South Pole station was first established back in 1956 and was named after Roald Amundsen and Robert F. Scott who were both led expeditions to the Antarctic region. That was way back when the original station was constructed but over the years the station has been destroyed, rebuilt, expanded, and even upgraded throughout the years. Around 200 people lived here during the summer season and the number dwindles down to 50 come winter time. The coldest temperature drop that this area has ever experienced was when the air was at a freezing negative 73 degrees Celsius or negative 99 degrees Fahrenheit. 3. The Dome Argus, Antarctic Plateau The Dome Argus is a plateau that is located in East Antarctica and lies 4,091 meters or 13,421 feet above sea level. The lowest temperature that was ever recorded here in this icy wasteland happened back in July of 2005. It got so cold here that the temperature dropped down to negative 82.5 degrees Celsius or -116.5 degrees Fahrenheit. This area also happens to be the “highest point of an ice sheet in the Antarctic region,” along with being one of the driest areas on Earth as well. 2. The Vostok Station, Antarctica This Russian weather monitoring station can be found in the icy tundra of the Antarctic where it lies at 3,488 meters or 11,443.6 feet above sea level. This makes the area have low oxygen levels and there’s almost no moisture in the air. Temperatures here can reach anywhere from negative 32.1 degrees Celsius or negative 25.8 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the warmest it gets, to, well, even colder than that. Vostok station broke the record for the lowest temperature ever recorded on Earth which it set back on January 21, 1983. 1. Dome Fuji Ridge, East Antarctic Plateau Finally. Here we are. We’ve reached the end of our list and now we’re at what is considered to be the coldest area in the known world. Located on the East Antarctic Plateau is the Dome Fuji Ridge which is located in between Dome Argus and Dome Fuji. It’s here that the lowest temperature on earth was seen and picked up by a NASA satellite. It was back in August of 2010 that the temperature reached a mind-numbing negative 93.2 degrees Celsius or negative 135.8 degrees Fahrenheit and stole the record from the Vostok Station, however, it’s not official as it wasn’t declared by Guinness so technically Vostok remains the coldest. Yeah, it’s a weird situation.
