Vostok Station is a Russian Antarctic research station. This station is at the southern Pole of Cold, with the lowest reliably measured natural temperature on Earth of −89.2 °C (−128.6 °F). Research includes ice core drilling and magnetometry. Vostok (Russian for “east”) was named after Vostok, the lead ship of the First Russian Antarctic Expedition captained by Fabian von Bellingshausen (the second ship Mirny captained by Mikhail Lazarev became the namesake for Mirny Station).
