Workforce backed by Microsoft co-founder locates USS Helena wreck

HELENA, Mont. — Microsoft co-founder’s mission to find sunken warships within the South Pacific has chalked up one other victory with the invention of the cruiser Helena practically 75 years after it was sunk by Japanese torpedoes within the waters off the Solomon Islands, reviving tales of the battle-tested ship’s endurance and the practically unbelievable survival story of 165 of the crewmen.

Paul Allen’s group searches for the ships to “deliver the historical past again right into a related dialog,” mentioned Janet Greenlee, a spokeswoman for Allen’s Vulcan Inc. “He needs to honor people who have served and are serving.”

The wreckage of the Helena was discovered March 23, a couple of half mile beneath the floor of the New Georgia Sound.
