Unscramble the Blue Letters

That's the unknown world, and today we've only eolxrped about 3 prnceet of what's out there in the ocean. Already we've found the world's highest mountains, the world's deepest valleys, ueeatndwrr lakes, underwater waterfalls — a lot of that we shared with you from the stage. And in a place where we thuohgt no life at all, we find more life, we think, and diversity and detnsiy than the tropical rainforest, which tells us that we don't know much about this planet at all. There's still 97 percent, and either that 97 percent is empty or just full of surprises.

Original Text

That's the unknown world, and today we've only explored about 3 percent of what's out there in the ocean. Already we've found the world's highest mountains, the world's deepest valleys, underwater lakes, underwater waterfalls — a lot of that we shared with you from the stage. And in a place where we thought no life at all, we find more life, we think, and diversity and density than the tropical rainforest, which tells us that we don't know much about this planet at all. There's still 97 percent, and either that 97 percent is empty or just full of surprises.
