The RRS Sir David Attenborough is launched

I can think of no finer name for an artic research vessel than the name of the world’s greatest natural history TV presenter. The RRS Sir David Attenborough was launched in Merseyside today by her illustrious namesake, who said he was honoured that his name was chosen. If you ask me,  though, it is the least we can do for  the man who, over the last 65 years, has opened everyone’s eyes  to so many of nature’s wonders. Mind  you, part  of me still thinks it would have been cool if they had stuck with the name the public originally suggested: Boaty McBoatface.
