Have you ever heard about the hottest place in the world? Did you know that might be in Iran?
The hottest place in the world is in the center of the Lut Desert, somewhere in the middle of Iran.
As NASA’s researchers said, the Lut Desert is the hottest recorded spot on the earth’s surface.
Scientists in Death Valley, California measured a temperature of 134°F (56.7°C) In 1913 and declared it the hottest temperature ever recorded. Then, later a weather station in Libya recorded a temperature of 136.4°F (58.0°C), In 1922.
After that for seven years, researchers examined infrared data from the Landsat satellites and found that the winner in five of those years — 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2009 — was the Lut Desert in Iran.
The highest temperature ever officially confirmed for a location on Earth was measured in 2005, a temperature of 159.3°F (70.7°C).
