Jacques Cousteau (June 11, 1910 – June 25, 1997) studied the sea and all forms of life in the water. He was a French naval officer, explorer, scientist, photographer, author, and film producer. “Captain Cousteau,” as people called him, became widely known because of his many films and books.
He made more than 120 television documentaries, and he wrote more than 50 books. He had a style as a showman, but he was also a teacher and nature lover. Because of his work, many people could enjoy the wonder of the oceans.
Captain Cousteau also helped create a new kind of scientific communication. He popularized scientific ideas and made them simple. Some people disagreed with his approach, but today, the news media follow Cousteau’s style of making science entertaining and easy to understand.
