About

Jacques-Yves Cousteau AC (commonly known in English as Jacques Cousteau; 11 June 1910 – 25 June 1997 - (aged 87)) 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.<Br> Source: <A Href=\"Https://En.Wikipedia.Org/Wiki/Main_Page\" Target=\"_blank\" Rel=\"Me Nofollow\"> Https://En.Wikipedia.Org/Wiki/Main_Page</A>
