Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
The replacement of the periscope with a photonics mast, on the Navy’s Virgnia-class subs, allows for the control room to be placed in a more convenient area of the submarine (as, unlike a periscope, it need not be located directly above the user.)
