Who was Jacques Cousteau?

Jacques-Yves Cousteau (June 11th, 1910 - June 25th, 1997) was a French naval officer, explorer, ecologist, scientist, innovator, film-maker, photographer, author, and researcher whose innate, insatiable curiosity led him to a lifetime of studying the world's oceans and seas and all forms of life in, around, AND above water. He was instrumental in the development of the Aqua-Lung, without which the sport of SCUBA diving would be unknown in today's world. He was a masterful pioneer in the field of marine conservation and was a member of the Académie Française.

Cousteau was born in Saint-André-de-Cubzac, Gironde, (France) to Daniel and Élisabeth Cousteau. He is generally known in France as "le Commandant Cousteau" (Commander Cousteau). Worldwide, he is commonly known as Jacques Cousteau or Captain Cousteau.

Does temperature affect magnetism?

The short answer:


The longer answer for those curious ones: Yes, temperature affects the strength of a magnet. Colder temperatures will permit the magnetic field strength to increase a bit and hotter temperatures will decrease it a bit.

What happens at really high temperatures?

There is a point called the Curie point or Curie temperature (Tc) at which the magnetic properties disappear altogether. This temperature varies from material to material. The material's magnetic domains are no longer "held in place" by the metallic crystal matrix when the Tc is exceeded. The atoms have too much kinetic energy and a random distribution of alignments of the domains will occur. Bye bye magnetism, hello paramagnetism.

The effects can be demonstrated by a simple experiment.

You need a bar magnet, a thin rope and a hand full of carpet tacks. Secure one end of the rope to the magnet. (so that you do not burn yourself in experiment later.)

Freeze the magnet. Pick up some tacks. Take them off and count them. Record the data.

Drop the magnet in boiling water. Pick up tacks again. Take them off and count them. Record the data. Compare the data. Repeat a few times. Compare the data from all runs. You should find that the magnet is stronger the colder it is.

What did Jacques Cousteau discover about sharks?

He discovered that, at first, they are afraid of humans in the water. Then they circle warily... they will nudge cautiously... then they will dine voraciously.

If they don't keep moving, they drown. If they are flipped over onto their backs, they are hypnotized and become instantly docile.
