Welcome to the ship that's famous for making one of the most important science discoveries in recent years.

The RRS Discovery was responsible for finding out there was a hole in the ozone layer - part of the Earth's atmosphere that shields it from the Sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.

And now Newsround's been on board for a special behind the scenes tour to find out what else it's looking into.

Leah took a tour with some science mad kids to find out what life is like onboard.

The team who work on the RRS Discovery were responsible for finding out that there was a hole in the ozone layer.

The ozone layer is part of the Earth's atmosphere that shields it from the Sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.

And this year the team are celebrating 50 years of environmental breakthroughs.

The ship is kitted out with loads of high tech equipment to help the team with their scientific work around the world.
