Mystery History Contest


This week’s MYSTERY HISTORY guest was a French naval officer, explorer, conservationist, filmmaker, innovator, scientist, photographer, author and researcher who studied the sea and all forms of life in water. He co-developed the Aqua-Lung, and pioneered marine conservation. In 1950, he founded the French Oceanographic Campaigns, and refitted a ship called Calypso as a mobile laboratory for field research and as his principal vessel for diving and filming. He also carried out underwater archaeological excavations in the Mediterranean Sea. This week’s Mystery History guest left a legacy that includes more than 120 television documentaries, more than 50 books, and an environmental protection foundation with 300,000 members. Best known as a sophisticated showman, teacher, and lover of nature - his work permitted many people to explore the resources of the oceans.
