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 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 ''SpongebobSquarepants'' (though most people [[WeirdAlEffect tend to forget this]]).

Grammar fix.
Cousteau is remembered for having pioneered the field of oceanography, underwater photography, and documentary film-making, and was so charismatic while doing so it has become nearly impossible to depict oceanography in fiction without [[MockCousteau specifically referencing Cousteau one way or another]]. And to say that he is to oceanography what Einstein or Hawking is to physics would not be out of line. Its simply a bare fact.
