The world-famous Boaty McBoatface is finally making its first journey.

As you all know already the internet chose the fantastic name for this new research vessel. Although as you also know, official powers rejected the name and adopted a more formal approach.

After much outcry on social media, the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) compromised and named a new remote controlled submarine Boaty McBoatface.

After almost a year of laying dormant, Boaty McBoatface is finally getting out and can roam the world.

Fair play to the NERC for actually listening to the public!
