More than 75 years after the aircraft carrier USS Hornet sank in a World War II battle, researchers have uncovered its wreckage 3 miles under the South Pacific Ocean.

 

The Hornet played a role in several key events of the war — including the Doolittle Raid on Japan and the pivotal Battle of Midway. 

 

Stunning pics are stunning.

Paul Allen's dedication to this cause is pretty neat. There's no $ in it, they aren't salvaging anything. Maybe a small amount of glory I guess. But I think mostly he funds it for tht adventure.


I could be wrong, but I recall that his estate funded this effort for a good period into the future.
