He was a bit unlucky to prove his theory in the ascent of sap in transportation of water in plants

I am credited with the technology behind a piece of equipment which is in popular use today, although it is not in the design technology that I became famous, but rather in it's practical application.

I would be best described as an explorer and ecologist.

A descendant of the younger brother of Aurthur Guinness (the brewery founder) was of great financial help in my explorations.

It was through him that you might say my future took a 'musical' turn.

In my first book, published in 1953, I correctly predicted the echolocation abilities of Porpoises.

Jacques-Yves Cousteau: 11 June 1910 25 June 1997.

Co-developer of the aqualung, marine explorer and ecologist.

Thomas Loel Guinness bought the ex RN Minesweeper Calypso in 1950 and leased her to Cousteau for a symbolic one franc a year.
