As The Simpsons taught us, life under the ocean is spectacular. There will be no accusations. There will be friendly crustaceans.

As if to prove Homer right, and also to do some kind of science stuff under the ocean, researcher Fabien Cousteau just returned from a remarkable 31 days spent living underwater.

The 46-year-old ocean explorer and 'aquanaut' lived for the entire time in his lab 63 feet beneath Key Largo in Florida. You can read a summary of the mission here.

The experiment mirrors the attempt by six aquanauts to live for 30 days beneath the Red Sea, filmed (to Oscar-winning effect) by Cousteau's famous grandfather, Jacques-Yves Cousteau, 'World Without Sun'.
