Description: (curated)

On this day in 1952, Edgerton sketched an idea for coupling a 35mm camera with a strobe for underwater photography. As he notes at the bottom of the page, he often chose the MIT pool as the testing grounds for new equipment. He also mentions “a ‘lung’ of the Cousteau type.” Jacques Cousteau was not only Edgerton’s colleague but also the co-inventor of the SCUTA gear (which stands for “Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus.”)
