Want to know what the weather is really like down in Antarctica? Then check out this video that a found on Gadling earlier today. It starts on the inside of one of the research stations down there, and then moves to an entryway that acts as a buffer from the outside world, where “Condition 1” conditions are in effect. Under those conditions, the wind is in excess of more than 50 mph and temperatures are in the -75 to -100 degrees F.
While in that entryway you’ll see that the room is frozen over and that snow is everywhere, and when the door is opened, you get a very brief, but all too telling, glimpse of what it’s like outside. Gives me the shivers just watching it!
