More information about Final Jeopardy:
When it was formed on August 12, 1946, it was originally known as the National Air Museum. During the Space Race of the 1960s, it became renamed as the National Air and Space Museum.
It is the second-most visited museum in the United States (#1 is the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York), and the fifth-most visited in the world (after the Louvre, the National Museum of China, the Met, and the Vatican Museums).
The aircraft at the museum includes The Spirit of St. Louis (the plane Charles Lindbergh made the first solo flight across the Atlantic with), the Bell X-1 (the plane on which Chuck Yeager made the first manned supersonic flight with), and the Apollo 11 command module.
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.)
