CLUE: The only dwarf planet located in the inner solar system, it’s named for an ancient deity of planting & harvests
About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Friday, 15 September 2023
Ceres is unique in being the only dwarf planet within the inner confines of our solar system. Its name is derived from a Roman goddess revered for agriculture, cereal crops, fertility, and motherhood.
Initially spotted in 1801, Ceres dominates the asteroid belt located between the planets of Mars and Jupiter. With a diameter spanning around 940 kilometers, or 584 miles, Ceres is noteworthy for its abundant water-ice content.
The scientific community finds Ceres intriguing, primarily because it might offer insights into the early stages of our solar system. Launched in 2007, NASA’s Dawn mission reached this dwarf planet in 2015, shedding light on its composition, surface features, and unusual bright areas within its craters. These bright patches were later identified as salt deposits, hinting at the possibility of historical, or even current, subsurface aquatic activity.

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.
