"The USS Lexington, a US aircraft carrier lost during the 1942 Battle of the Coral Sea, has been discovered by a team of civilian researchers off the north-east coast of Australia.
The Lexington was discovered on Sunday, March 4, by Vulcan Inc., a company chaired by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. A search team aboard the Research Vessel (R/V) Petrel found the ship—one of the United States’ first aircraft carriers—about 500 miles (800 km) from the Australian east coast, and at a depth of two miles (3 km). The ship went down in May 1942 after a four-day battle against three Japanese aircraft carriers."
