Correct response: What is the (RMS) Carpathia?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
The RMS Carpathia became famous in April 1912 after being the boat which rescued 712 survivors from the Titanic‘s lifeboats after the Titanic’s sinking. Unfortunately, the Carpathia had not been the closest ship to the Titanic; inquiries by the United States Senate and the British Wreck Commissioner both concluded that the SS Californian could have saved many of the Titanic‘s lost lives had it responded promptly to the Titanic‘s distress signal.
The Carpathia was torpedoed by the Imperial German Navy on July 15, 1918 while it was part of a convoy between Liverpool and Boston; the only fatalities were five crew.
Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well! All proceeds from any “Keep The Faith And We’ll Win” shirt sold will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. To date, over $370 has been raised.)
