QUICK FACTS
  • The coldest temperature ever recorded was -89,2 deg Celsius, at Vostok Station, a Russian research station in Antarctica, on July 21, 1983
  • One of Russia’s most urgent problems is its grave population decline; in response, the Kremlin has created incentives, including cash awards for families to have more children
  • It takes seven days to travel along the world’s most famous continuous long-distance railway: the Trans-Siberean railway (5,772mi or 9,289km); it crosses seven time zones.
  • In 1970, Russia started drilling a hole in the ground just to see what was down there. They stopped in 1989 when they got down to 40,230ft (12,262m), making it the deepest hole ever drilled into Earth. It was extremely hot down there: 356oF (180oC), and there is a lot of water and hydrogen gas.
