The next Royal Research Ship (RRS) needs a name and it's down to the public (oh dear).
The £200 million ($424 million NZD) ship will be used to explore the Arctic and Antarctic from 2019.
These are the names that are leading:
4th: RRS David Attenborough
3rd: RRS Pillar of Autumn
2nd: RRS Henry Worsley
1st: RRS Boaty McBoatface
Yup, you read that correctly! RRS BOATY MCBOATFACE could be the name! HAHAHAHA.
