The British Natural Environment Research Council, asked the public to help it name a new ship. The most popular name turned out to be Boaty Mc Boat face, but in fact the boat was named after David Attenborough. A little yellow remote control submarine took the name Boaty Mc Boat face. The submarine can travel under ice and reach depths of 6,000 metres. It will transmit the information it collects to researchers via a radio link. It is looking at water flow and water movement in the Southern Oceans.
