Final Jeopardy Explanation – Thursday, April 11 2024

The two space shuttles named after crafts commanded by the man who died far from home in 1779 are the HMS Endeavour and the HMS Discovery, led by Captain James Cook. Cook was a British explorer, navigator, and cartographer who made three voyages to the Pacific Ocean, achieving the first recorded European contact with the eastern coastline of Australia and the Hawaiian Islands, and the first recorded circumnavigation of New Zealand. He died in Hawaii during his third expedition, in a conflict with the Hawaiian islanders. The space shuttles named in honor of Cook’s ships are the Space Shuttle Endeavour, named after HMS Endeavour, Cook’s ship on his first voyage of discovery, and the Space Shuttle Discovery, named in honor of HMS Discovery, which Cook commanded on his third and final voyage. These names reflect the spirit of exploration and discovery that both Cook’s voyages and the space shuttle program aimed to embody.
