Guided missile destroyer Dauntless docked in Boston Harbor today

It was a pretty awesome sight to see this morning on the way into work- a sleek, modern, naval ship docked in Boston Harbor. I did some brief research on the world wide web and quickly discovered that this ship, D33, is the “Dauntless” a Type 45 Destroyer. Specifically, this is a British Royal Navy vessel, which serves as a guided missile destroyer. Note the large dome on the top- I wasn’t a science major, but I am going to guess that this is a huge radar array. It turns out this ship is cutting edge military technology, just placed into service in 2007.
