Video: Boiling water at minus-52

Pot of boiling water tossed out at minus 47 celsius in Dawson City, YT

Alaska Dispatch

In Dawson City, that town on the other side of the Alaska-Canadian border, a resident reminds us what happens when you throw a pot of boiling water into the minus-52.6 air (that's minus-47 Celsius for those on the Yukon side).

The video was posted by YouTube user "Dawson CityYukon," which belongs to the Klondike Visitors Association.

We're not sure if this video by an agency trying to promote tourism for Dawson and the Yukon will encourage visitors to come north or persuade them to stay home. Either way, it's pretty cool.
