Jacques-Yves Cousteau ƿæs geboren on 11um Sēremōnþes, 1910 in Saint André de Cubzac in Franclande and forþfērde on 25um Sēremōnþes, 1997 in Parise. Hē ƿæs Frencisc sciptoga and explorer and researcher. Hē leornode þā sǣ and ealle þe lifdon in ƿætre. Man cnǣƿþ Cousteau in Franclande mǣste sƿā le commandant Cousteau (Bebēodere Cousteau).

Cousteau ƿearþ mǣrora. In Ƿinterfylleðe 1960 EURATOM ƿolde āƿeorpan in sǣ micelne radioactiviscne þreax. Cousteau organized a publicity campaign which gained wide popular support.

During this discussion Cousteau found out that the reason for French experiments and research was American refusal to share its atomic secrets with its allies.
In 1974 he ongann þone Cousteau Society for the Protection of Ocean Life, and in þissum nū sind māran þonne 300,000.
Cousteau nemnode georne hine "oceanographic technician". He was in reality a sophisticated lover of nature, especially that of the sea. His work allowed people of all continents tō visit life under the ocean's surface and explore through television the resources of the "blue continent".
The works that Cousteau produced also created a new kind of scientific communication that caused some criticism by formal academics. The so-called divulgationisme, a simple comprehensible form of sharing scientific concepts, was soon used for other disciplines too and became one of the most important and appreciated characteristics of modern TV broadcasting. The documentary information found in Cousteau's words a linear scheme to follow.
Now Cousteau's figure is admired, beloved worldwide through the many who love the sea, and is regarded to with a sort of devotion, as symbolic of adventure, nature and exploration.
