6. the Peacock
7. Clark Gable and Carole Lombard
8. "Vanilla Sky"

The Mesopause is the temperature minimum at the boundary between the
mesosphere and the thermosphere atmospheric regions. Due to the lack of
solar heating and very strong radiative cooling from carbon dioxide, the
mesosphere is the coldest region on Earth with temperatures as low as -100
°C (-148 °F or 173 K).[1] The altitude of the mesopause for many years was
assumed to be at around 85 km (53 mi.), but observations to higher altitudes
and modeling studies in the last 10 years have shown that in fact the
mesopause consists of two minima - one at about 85 km and a stronger minimum
at about 100 km (62 mi).

By the way , male menopause is called Andropause .
