Jacques Cousteau, the inventor
Jacques Cousteau, seen here in 1965, is best known for co-inventing the Aqua-Lung, but he also had a hand in developing technology like submersibles and underwater camera equipment.
"He was fascinated with a world that was really a complete mystery and there were no tools to go and explore it," Fabien Cousteau says. "It wasn't necessarily that he wanted to be an inventor per se but he had to invent the tools to go out there and see what it was like."
