The UK's new polar research ship, the RRS Sir David Attenborough, has completed basic sea trials and is ready to undertake her first expedition.The vessel - which the British public voted to be named Boaty McBoatface - came up the Thames on Wednesday through the Woolwich Barrier and is now tied up in Greenwich. She's spending a few days at the home of the Prime Meridian to enable the public to see her, but also to mark the start of the COP26 climate conference.
