RRS James Cook
RRS James Cook
The RRS James Cook is a British Royal Research Ship operated by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). She was built in 2006 to replace the ageing RRS Charles Darwin with funds from Britain's NERC and the DTI's Large Scientific Facilities Fund. She is named after Captain James Cook, the British explorer, navigator and cartographer. Her maiden scientific voyage, on 5th March 2007, was to study a hole in the Earth's crust revealing the mantle below. She is seen here on a recent visit to Cape Town moored at Quay 6 of the V&A Waterfront. In the background (just partly visible) at the Passenger Terminal is the lighted up Luxury passenger liner 'Silver Wind'. Unfortunately I had no tripod for this capture. I also had to crop the left hand side quite severely as their was a couple who posed and tried to get into the photo! :-) EXPLORE: JANUARY 15, 2009 - #271
