    Science Goes to the Movies [#206H] In the Heart of The Sea, White Whales and Conservation Aquanaut and filmmaker Fabien Cousteau joins the show to talk about Ron Howard's In the Heart of the Sea. To begin, Cousteau breaks down the likelihood of a sperm whale attacking a ship, and what might motivate such behavior, including mistaking the ship for a competing whale and protecting its young. The realism of the vindictiveness displayed by the whale in the film is also considered. The role of whale oil in the 19th century is assessed next, and the diving ability of whales is discussed. Cousteau then offers his insights, as an aquanaut, on the similarities and differences between outer space and the deep ocean, including weightlessness, slowed down motion, and living arrangements. The final topic is the current state of the ocean and the environmental issues arising from chronic over-fishing and pollution. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG
