I was shocked to recently read this statistic-Ninety-five per cent of the ocean is unexplored. 

What’s down there? Why do we, as a race, spend millions on exploring space, yet who knows what is only a few miles away- seven miles at it's deepest?

Correct  TTT. 

//There are billions of planets in our galaxy and billions of galaxies in the universe. Perhaps we won't need to change anything.//

Which is why there is undoubtedly life elsewhere in the universe. The trouble is we have no way of getting there.

The distances involved are unimaginably vast.

Don't worry, they've already come to us ....
