UK NEWS: A new British ship, the “Boaty McBoatface”, is heading for the open sea

NEW BRIGHTON, England – A new British ship, Sir David Attenborough, is heading to the open sea on Tuesday to begin trials after a hurricane delay, before making his first trip to Antarctica next year for climate change research.

200 million pounds ($ 260 million), a state-of-the-art art ship, a polar research boat, and its red boat with a bright yellow crane behind it, passed Liverpool’s historic port and headed north to Wales.

Officially the ship is named after the BBC’s naturalist David Attenborough, but for many in Britain it will always be known as the “Boaty McBoatface”, following the nomination of a public shipwreck in 2016.

Its departure from Liverpool was delayed for about a week due to the stormy weather, a British Antarctic Survey (BAS) spokesman said, with peaceful seas that like to test and measure its expert equipment for the first time.

It will remain at sea for less than a week before the implant hitting in Holyhead, Wales, when the current closure of the Welsh coronavirus expires on November 9, a spokesman for the organization said.

BAS will use the ship, conducting ice tests in the Arctic in early 2021 before a trip to the Antarctic in November next year, when scientists say it will turn UK research into colder climates.
