But he also wanted the longer time underwater of the helmet system. In 1943, Cousteau co-developed an air tank system that a diver would wear on his back. The system supplied air only when the diver breathed in - so no air was wasted. Cousteau called it the Aqualung. It is similar to the diving tanks that are still used today.
Jacques Cousteau could now travel down and see what a shipwreck looked like. He could swim with the fish and discover new, strange creatures. Today, many people dive for work or for enjoyment. Cousteau is regarded as the father of modern diving.
