## Unscramble the Blue Letters

This is the way we should be going into the oceans. This is a three-dimensional machine. What we need to do is go down into the ocean with the ferdeom of the animals, and move in this three-dimensional space. OK, this is good stuff. This is man’s first attempt at flying underwater. Right now, I’m just coming down on this goguores, big, giant manta ray. She has twice the wingspan that I do. There I’m coming; she sees me. And just notice how she rlols under and turns; she doesn’t sit there and try and blow air into a tank and kind of flow up or sink down — she just rolls. And the craft that I’m in — this hasn’t been shown before. Chris asked us to show stuff that hasn’t been shown before. I wanted you to notice that she actually turned to come back up. There I am; I see her cnmoig back, coming up underneath me. I put reverse thrust and I try and pull gently down. I’m trying to do everything very gtelny. We spent about three hours together and she’s beginning to trust me. And this blalet is controlled by this lady here. She gets about that close and then she pulls away. So now I try and go after her, but I’m practicing flying. This is the first finylg machine. This was the first prototype. This was a fly by wire. It has wnigs. There’re no silly buoyancy tanks — it’s pnrmeeatnly, positively buoyant. And then by moving through the water it’s able to take that corontl. Now, look at that; look, it’s — she just blew me away. She just rolled right away from underneath. Really that’s the only real dive I’ve ever made in this mcainhe.

## Original Text

This is the way we should be going into the oceans. This is a three-dimensional machine. What we need to do is go down into the ocean with the freedom of the animals, and move in this three-dimensional space. OK, this is good stuff. This is man’s first attempt at flying underwater. Right now, I’m just coming down on this gorgeous, big, giant manta ray. She has twice the wingspan that I do. There I’m coming; she sees me. And just notice how she rolls under and turns; she doesn’t sit there and try and blow air into a tank and kind of flow up or sink down — she just rolls. And the craft that I’m in — this hasn’t been shown before. Chris asked us to show stuff that hasn’t been shown before. I wanted you to notice that she actually turned to come back up. There I am; I see her coming back, coming up underneath me. I put reverse thrust and I try and pull gently down. I’m trying to do everything very gently. We spent about three hours together and she’s beginning to trust me. And this ballet is controlled by this lady here. She gets about that close and then she pulls away. So now I try and go after her, but I’m practicing flying. This is the first flying machine. This was the first prototype. This was a fly by wire. It has wings. There’re no silly buoyancy tanks — it’s permanently, positively buoyant. And then by moving through the water it’s able to take that control. Now, look at that; look, it’s — she just blew me away. She just rolled right away from underneath. Really that’s the only real dive I’ve ever made in this machine.
