LandSat and MODIS Update
We may think that its been pretty cold here in the USA over the past month, but National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA) and U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) satellites, Landsat 8 and MODIS, have found a spot in Antarctica which is believed to be the coldest place on Earth - with a temperature below 133.6 Fahrenheit (-92 degrees C). Prior measurements were hampered by lower resolution and measurement accuracy. The combined measurement data from these two satellites - both carrying Materion filter arrays - has enabled this new discovery.
