I stumbled on this article in the The Atlantic which I thought was worth sharing.  I don’t know much about the Christian Lambertsen other than that he died recently and what I just read in Wikipedia, but the video is cool and the short article is well written. The video shows him doing things we greatly frown upon today, like holding his breath. I did see some bubbles coming out of his mouth on the ascent – otherwise “the father of the Frogmen” might not have lived quite as long as he did. He looks to have had a very distinguished career.
