Rare blue whale skeleton unveiled at UK’s Natural History Museum

A gigantic blue whale skeleton was suspended in the Natural History Museum in London on Thursday.

Scientists named the 25.2-meter-long whale “Hope”, drawing attention to the role of science in safeguarding the environment.
The specimen is 126 years old, coming from a blue whale that died in 1891 off the coast of Ireland.

The whale replaced the much-loved Dippy, a plaster dinosaur replica that graced the museum’s main entrance for decades.
