Jacques Cousteau

Jacques-Yves Cousteau in 1972 Jacques-Yves Cousteau (; 11 June 1910 – 25 June 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. He co-developed the Aqua-lung, pioneered marine conservation and was a member of the Académie française.

Cousteau described his underwater world research in a series of books, perhaps the most successful being his first book, ''The Silent World: A Story of Undersea Discovery and Adventure'', published in 1953. Cousteau also directed films, most notably the documentary adaptation of the book, ''The Silent World'', which won a Palme d'or at the 1956 Cannes Film Festival. He remained the only person to win a Palme d'Or for a documentary film, until Michael Moore won the award in 2004 for ''Fahrenheit 9/11''.
