In 1950, Cousteau founded the French Oceanographic Campaigns, and in 1953 published what would be the first of many, ''many'' books. In service of his new career, he purchased an old minesweeper ship and refitted it as a research vessel called the ''Calypso'' to effectively go to war against ignorance about the sea. Throughout the 1950s, he helped develop new mini-submersibles for underwater exploration. In 1960, he organized a successful protest against the dumping of radioactive waste in the Mediterranean. He then created a TV documentary series in the United States initially called ''The Undersea World Of Jacques Cousteau'', narrated by Creator/RodSerling. The 1970s saw Cousteau lose valuable assistants to assorted accidents, including his younger son Philippe's death in a Catalina flying boat crash. He continued to remain active despite this, producing additional documentaries over the rest of his life. Among the tributes to him is the #1 hit song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35x_rwyBh-8 Calypso" by John Denver]] ("Aye, Calypso, the places you've been to/The things that you've shown us/The stories you tell…") and the French-accented narrator in ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' (though most people [[WeirdAlEffect tend to forget this]]).

Jacques-Yves Cousteau, more commonly known as simply Jacques Cousteau, is generally regarded as the greatest oceanographer to have ever lived.

Born in 1910, he entered the French Ecole Naval in 1930 and graduated as a gunnery officer. An automobile accident prevented him from becoming an aviator as he originally wished, so he turned his naval interests elsewhere[[labelnote:*]]Cousteau was assigned to naval intelligence and later was involved in covert operations in Italy, China, and the USSR, and worked in opposition to the Vichy government during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII.[[/labelnote]] . During the early 1940s, Cousteau began creating underwater documentaries. During these early documentaries, he helped develop the aqua-lung, which would evolve into the scuba systems that are now in use.

Cousteau passed away in Paris in 1997, two weeks after his 87th birthday, which unfortunately led to bitter infighting amongst his relatives over his legacy. Despite that his elder son Jean Michel endeavors to carry on his work to this day.
