Jacques Cousteau gestures at his latest underwater research vessel, a rudderless diving saucer that could maneuver with thrusting nozzles like an underwater airplane. Cousteau received a total of 37 grants from National Geographic and took its magazine readers along on a dozen expeditions. Photo by Thomas J. Abercrombie/National Geographic
