On Monday, 15 October, Paul Allen passed away at the age of 65. The American entrepreneur and philanthropist, who co-founded the legendary Microsoft with Bill Gates, was one of the richest men in the world. In the last decade he became heavily involved in the search for shipwrecks of great importance to US history.

To this end, he gathered around his project a group of experts from various fields, who had at their disposal the research vessel R/V “Petrel”, equipped with top-of-the-range equipment to carry out wreck search missions.
