EOT139 Student Bound for Mars? 2/11/14

Eye on the Triangle is WKNC’s weekly public affairs programming, with news, interviews, opinion, weather, sports, arts, music, events, and issues that matter to NCSU, Raleigh, and the Triangle.  This week on EOT:

Art enthusiasts of the Triangle may have noticed the lack of a physical location for NC State’s Gregg Museum of Art and Design, but that doesn’t mean they’re not still providing the area with great exhibitions.  Last week on Eye on the Triangle, we profiled the history of the museum.  This week, Nick has more.  

The Sigma Pi fraternity here at NCState is hosting a 5K in conjunction with the NCSU Counseling Center in under a month in an effort to raise awareness about suicide prevention.  Here’s Desirae. 

The Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969 was and continues to be a source of awe and inspiration for people around the world.  A new project, titled Mars One, could possibly blow that achievement out of the water, and a student right here at NC State may get the chance to participate.  Here’s our newest contributor, Saba, with more.  

According to Forbes, Raleigh is the 4th fastest-growing city in the country.  Nerd-Wallet rates the city as the 6th best for job-seekers, and 24-7 Wall Street has us as the 10th best-run city.  It should come as no surprise, then, that a lot of changes are in the works for the city’s near future.  Michaela has more on what to expect.

Listen to all this, plus national and international news from Andrew and Sydney, meteorologist Katie Costa’s forecast, Ben with sports, and a community calendar.

Nick Savage and Andrew Eichen bring you another edition of “Eye on the Triangle,” live each Tuesday at 7 p.m. on WKNC 88.1 FM and and available as a downloadable podcast.
