Correct response: Who are Phobos and Deimos?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Phobos and Deimos are best known today as being the moons of Mars. Of course, it makes sense for the twin moons of Mars to be named after the twin sons of Ares from Greek mythology. I’m glad that they aren’t named Timor & Formido, though.
There isn’t much in the mythology specifically about Ares’ twin sons, but it is well-known that they followed their father into battle (and were essentially the mythological personification of fear and terror in the Greek pantheon).
