Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen just found a lost WW2 aircraft carrier

Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen just found a lost WW2 aircraft carrier

The USS Lexington was scuttled after the Battle of the Coral Sea in May 1942 after it was struck by Japanese bombs and torpedoes. It remained on the bottom of the sea–its location unknown–until this month, when Allen’s company Vulcan found its wreckage two miles down in the Coral Sea, about 500 miles off the east coast of Australia, reports CNBC. Yet though the Lexington has now been found, it will remain in the water depths as it is considered a war grave by the United States military.
