  • Some of the Temperatures in Chicago are Lower than those Found on Mars
 

Apparently, some of the mean temperatures that are extant in Chicago during winter are lower than those found on Mars.

It sure is cold in downtown Chicago. In fact, it is colder than some of the most frigid places on earth or the solar system for that matter. The higher temperatures recorded by the Mars Curiosity Rover included 17 degrees Fahrenheit. Thus it was colder than Mars in Chicago.

Mars atmosphere is however thinner than that found on earth. It is in fact 1% as thick as earth’s atmosphere. Thus the highs and lows of temperature on both planets are very different from one another. They actually cannot be compared since it is different criteria they operate under.  

On December 12th, the lowest temperature on Mars was 103 degrees below zero. It was colder in Chicago (in a certain part of it) than the temperature on Mars, according to CBS Chicago.

Two below Celsius was noted down by NASA on Mars at one point and it is higher than in Chicago. The temperature was measured at the equator of Mars. This statistic is very paradoxical. It shows the differences and anomalies found in various parts of the universe such as the earth and Mars.

The thing is that the temperature in Chicago is cooler than most spots on earth. It is an exception and exceptions do not prove the rule. The weather patterns are undergoing a behavioral pattern that is topsy turvy.

Even Moscow is warmer than Chicago at this stage in our history. There is the frigid north with such areas as Siberia, China and of course Chicago, Illinois. The sheer brutality of the cold temperature in Chicago has many of the natives turning to warmer places to enjoy their winter such as Florida for example.

The record low temperatures that Chicago reached recently has made many a person’s skin break out in goose pimples. It is indeed chilly weather you find in the city where Barack Obama began his campaign for the Presidency.
