SCUBA (or scuba) is a system of air tanks and a regulator that lets you breathe underwater. It was invented for the US military by Dr. Christian Lambersten just prior to World War II.[1]

Four years later, improvements were made by Jacques Cousteau and French engineer Émile Gagnan (see demand regulator).
