Boaty McBoatface is on the high seas

Boaty McBoatface is headed to AntarcticaRemember the competition last year to name a new polar research ship that backfired? Well, the yellow robot sub that ended up with the winning name is headed out on its first mission.

That’s right, researchers have to discuss Boaty McBoatface’s trip to Antarctica and say that name frequently. Picture it...grown men and women of science saying 'Boaty McBoatface!'

The sub may have a silly name, but a serious mission. Boaty will investigate water flow and turbulence in the dark depths of the Orkney Passage, a region of the Southern Ocean. The data it collects will help scientists understand how the ocean is responding to global warming.
