In Albuquerque, New Mexico, Paul Allen with his friend Bill Gates ( life cycle 124875(2) …2017, 2018 ) , in 1975, began marketing a BASIC programming language interpreter

On 5 March 2018 = 2026
businessman and explorer Paul Allen announced that he had located the wreck of the Lexington about 500 miles (800 km) off the eastern coast of Australia

On 5 March 2018, the research vessel RV Petrel, in a search led by billionaire Paul Allen, discovered the wreck of Lexington during an expedition to the Coral Sea. The ship lies nearly 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) below the surface and 500 miles (800 km) off the coast of Queensland. An ROV confirmed the identity of the wreck by finding the nameplate on the stern. The ship lies in three sections. The main section lies upright. A mile to the west, the bow and stern sections lie across from each other, with the bridge lying by itself between the sections. Further to the west, a concentration of aircraft comprising seven Devastators, three Dauntlesses, and a single Wildcat was also located, in a good state of preservation
