There are some bone-chilling places on Earth, but what is the lowest temperature ever recorded and where was it?
Although a mountain could theoretically grow taller than Mount Everest, forces like gravity and erosion work against it.
Potentially hazardous objects, are large space rocks that orbit closely to Earth and could cause widespread damage to our planet.

China is deploying thousands of sensors nearly a mile under the ocean's surface, to monitor the darkness for flashes of light that reveal the presence of a neutrino.
In samples of organic-rich black shale, scientists found evidence for oxygen depletion and hydrogen sulfide expansion in ancient seas.
If wormholes exist, they might magnify distant objects according to Einstein's theory of relativity — and that makes it possible for us to find them, new research suggests.
Scientists calculated the diameter of Earth's innermost core using earthquake waves that bounced through the planet 'like ping-pong balls.'
Asteroid (199145) 2005 YY128 will pass by Earth at a distance of 2.5 million miles on Feb. 15, but will pose no threat to our planet.
Leading theories suggest that the first energy used by life was either from the sun or from geothermal heat and chemistry at the bottom of the ocean.
Using the ALMA telescope in Chile and Einstein's theory of relativity, scientists observed a young galaxy in the early universe that is invisible in nearly every wavelength.

Although models accurately predicted the evolution of the Arctic storm, scientists were surprised to see just how much sea ice thickness decreased in the storm's aftermath.
The new "dwarf dinosaur" species lends more evidence to the "island rule," which posits that animals evolving on islands become smaller than their mainland counterparts.
From leaks to weather to logistical concerns, there's a lot that can go wrong with a rocket launch. Here's why it has taken NASA so long to get its Mega Moon Rocket off the ground.
