Chinese scientists registered abnormally low temperature – about 190 degrees Celsius on the dark side of the Moon.

Researchers from the Chinese lunar exploration mission, Chang’e 4, analyzed the data after their instruments woke up from hibernation.

According to scientists, the temperature during that time dropped to -190 degrees Celsius. And this is much lower than the minimum temperature ever registered on the visible side of the moon.

Earlier the temperature of Moon’s surface varied from -173 degrees Celcius at night to +127 degrees Celcius during the day.
