Huge research ship

A £200 million research ship, a huge floating laboratory, will explore the oceans and climate of the Arctic and Antarctic.

George Osborne said about the new research ship:

“One of the final frontiers in the world where there is still much discovery to be done are the polar oceans. Britain must continue to have a presence in these parts of the world.”

“A new state-of-the-art polar research flagship will extend the UK’s capability and reach in polar waters. It also makes explicitly clear our long-term commitment to maintaining our presence and scientific excellence in South Georgia & the South Sandwich Islands and the British Antarctic Territory.”
