water cannot boil at 60 degrees (Fahrenheit or Celsius). at least on earth. but if you water on earth is kept liquid not just by the planets temperature but also by the air pressure. of you take a glass of water and teleport it into space the water will simply "boil" away. this happens because there is no air pressure to keep the water liquid, so the molecules of the water simply drift apart.
