11No eggs for you

A closer look and you can see if you break an egg and hold it for a few seconds the white and yolk will freeze in mid-air and it will look like art. This was taken when Cyprien tried to make scrambled eggs. The eggs froze in mid-air and the scientist thought it would be a fun image to post on his blog.

12Frozen honey

We believe that is a spoon of honey but regardless of what was being poured on the slice of bread, it is now frozen. Another glimpse of how low the temperatures are here. The frozen trail of honey from the spoon to the bread is strong enough to hold the spoon in the air.

13Noodles in the air

If you thought the low temperature only affected liquids, think again. That is a bowl of noodles and again the frozen trail holding the spoon in mid-air. These are noodles strands with density and mass yet freeze easily due to the temperature. The weather here is so bad that the sun can be seen after 3 whole months.

14A closer look

This image is pure brilliance and a good show of how fast food items can freeze. The temperature here is above −70 °C and the bowl of noodle is frozen. The air outside is dry and lacks oxygen and taking pictures outside shows the intensity of the low temperatures here.
