Paul Allen does it again: USS Lexington located

Lady Lex was sunk in the Battle of Coral Sea in 1942, in what was probably the first naval engagement where the ships involved never came into visual range of each other.

Allen's team has located her 3,000 meters (about two miles) below the surface, resting on the floor of the Coral Sea more than 500 miles off the eastern coast of Australia.

This is the 5th combat vessel Allen has located over the years. He's like a real-life Dirk Pitt. I like to think I'd do something half as cool if I had that much money. The reality is I'd probably be more like Jack Whittaker.
