Orion and Sag both have several within them.
I don't usually whine about clues I got right, but that's what makes it a subpar clue in my opinion. It's pinned on "which constellation did Huygens talk about?" - which is an incredibly obscure factoid.

Re: Tuesday, April 13, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not sure what there is in the FJ! clue to avoid the coin flip unless you know the specific fact. The Wikipedia article doesn't even mention Huygens. If the clue called for you to name the weapon it would be another coin flip, since Orion traditionally has both sword and club. (Nebula is in sword.) ...

All three contestants must have had enough of AR12, they did everything they could to not return for tomorrow’s episode. Lots of possibilities to consider after Buenos Aires to be sure though.

I never would have connected a sweltering cabin to an aircraft. I went with Teddy Roosevelt, figuring he was on a hunting trip somewhere when McKinley died.

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

That’s not a geography question, it’s a sports question. If you don’t know your World Cup hosts/winners, you’ve got zero chance. If it were some random WC, I'd agree with you. But I'd argue the first WC is more notable and worthy of knowing what country hosted it. Once you know the country, it beco...

Maybe you could add the hyphens where the show put them?
ANTIDIS-
ESTABLISHMENT-
ARIANISM
I wouldn't advise that. It would screw it up if anyone ever searched for "antidisestablishmentarianism."

Said Edwin Booth. Well, that's also a correct response... wonder how it would have been judged on the show. Ready to get ultra nitpicky? The letter was sent in 1835. Edwin was born in 1833, and John Wilkes was born in 1838. So at the time of the letter, he was a current father of Edwin and a future...
