More information about Final Jeopardy:
Working with data from the New Horizons spacecraft, the International Astronomical Union began approving names of geological features on Pluto in August 2017. Tombaugh Regio was named after Clyde Tombaugh, who discovered the body in 1930; fossae are ditches, and they are being named after underworld mythical figures on Pluto. The IAU has determined that generally, Pluto’s features will be named after underworld mythological figures, writers, scientists, and engineers associated with Pluto, as well as pioneering space missions and spacecraft.
