Out in the Cold

Yisrael Rutman

Brrrrrrr! This week Jr. takes you from your doorstep to the ends of the universe, from Central Park in New York City to the light-years-distant Boomerang Nebula, to deep under the ice of Antarctica and to the summit of Mount Everest — to find out just how cold it can get.
