Not having the stones to name the actual research vessel Boaty McBoatface after a big national contest said they should by a huge margin, the spineless weenies compromised by giving the little yellow submarine that name, after naming the big red boat "Sir David Attenborough," cough.
Here he is, the baby boatface.
And now, the little yellow Boaty is off on his first real mission, to investigate water flow and turbulence in the dark depths of the Orkney Passage, a 3.5km deep region of the Southern Ocean.
Good luck, Boaty! Don't come back and torpedo the ship that should have had your name! Although that would be justice. Sweet, sweet justice.
