JACQUESERTAUD Man meets monster above the sea floor. Aiming his camera like a ba zooka, Capt. Jacques-Yves Cous teau films Denise, the diving saucer, in the depths of the Caribbean. Able to go deeper and stay down longer than a free diver, the jet-propelled baby submarine aids man's under water probes. Pilot and observer peer through twin portholes. Undersea explorer Cousteau leads the National Geographic-Calypso expeditions for oceanographic re search. In 1961 the Society awarded him its Gold Medal for his pioneer ing efforts in the silent world. Mother ship for Captain Cous teau's fish men, Calypso suspends the diving saucer from her stern.
