Weekly Wordsmith: Jacques Cousteau

Jacques Cousteau (1910-1997) was a French naval officer, explorer, conservationist, filmmaker, innovator, scientist, photographer, author and researcher who studied the sea and all forms of life in water. In his life of discovery and inventions he shared with the world what is known as the aqualung. This invention led us to a world of exploration in the sea. Cousteau in the 1960's even helped stop nuclear dumping in the Mediterranean Sea. His life was anything but ordinary and he shared with us some great discoveries.
