ANSWER: Bermuda Triangle

About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Wednesday, 10 January 2024

The South Atlantic Anomaly, often likened to the “Bermuda Triangle of Space,” is notorious for its tendency to disrupt spacecraft. Situated above the South Atlantic Ocean, it features a notably weak spot in Earth’s magnetic field. This weakness permits higher levels of radiation from the Van Allen radiation belt to approach closer to Earth than usual, potentially disrupting satellites and spacecraft that traverse this zone. Such increased radiation can adversely affect onboard instruments, leading to temporary malfunctions or even lasting damage to the electronics. The area’s comparison to the Bermuda Triangle stems from its enigmatic reputation and the impact it has had on space missions, a concept frequently highlighted in popular culture.

Final Jeopardy Video – Wednesday, 10 January 2024

Watch all the videos from today’s Jeopardy episode below, including highlights, behind the scenes outtakes and full episodes.

Final Jeopardy is the final round of the popular American television game show Jeopardy!, in which participants test their knowledge in numerous areas by answering questions. In Final Jeopardy, participants are given a single clue and must wager a percentage of their existing earnings based on their confidence in their ability to successfully respond.

Each contestant surreptitiously writes down their wager during the commercial break. The Final Jeopardy clue is presented when the programme resumes, and participants have 30 seconds to write down their solution in the form of a question (e.g., “What is…?”). When the timer runs out, the host, reveals each contestant’s response and wager in ascending order of their pre-Final Jeopardy scores. The scores of contestants are adjusted based on whether their response is correct or incorrect, as well as the amount wagered. At the end of the round, the contestant with the highest score is proclaimed the winner.
