Lut desert, 'Hottest on Earth'

A recent NASA satellite record of temperatures in Lut desert in Iran shows it is the hottest place on earth. With temperatures as high as 71 °C, Lut is aptly called the 'Pole of Heat on Earth.’
The 'hot spot' absorbs the most heat from sunlight due to the cream-colored wind sands in the background, Mehr news agency reported.
