I honestly feel like this was the best possible outcome, considering the naming kerfuffle previously. The yellow little submarine who could.
From the NY Post:
And when Boaty [the ship’s remotely operated undersea vehicle] took its first expedition in April 2017 to study the depths of the Southern Ocean, it uncovered a key process linking increasing Antarctic winds to higher sea temperatures, which in turn fuels rising levels, according to the Telegraph.
He is the little boat who could:
In its three-day mission, Boaty traveled 112 miles through mountainous underwater valleys measuring the temperature, saltiness and turbulence of the water at depths of up to 13,000 feet.
