Wreckage from USS Helena (CL-50) was discovered late March, 2018, by the expedition crew of Research Vessel (R/V) Petrel, which is owned by Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Paul G. Allen. Helena was sunk July 6, 1943 by three Japanese torpedoes during the Battle of Kula Gulf as her blazing guns identified her as a target to enemy vessels. The St. Louis-class cruiser was found 860 meters below the surface, resting on the floor of the New Georgia Sound off the coast of the Solomon Islands. To learn more, visit http://www.paulallen.com
