The hotspot (or cold spot, in this case) is called Dome A, and is located on a plateau near central Antarctica
, roughly 2.5 miles, (4 kilometers) above sea-level. In a new study published July 29 in the journalNature
, researchers found that the conditions at Dome A are positively perfect for staring at the cosmos with minimal interference from E…
