WXDU News, Sports, and Information Tonight (2/15) 6:00-8:00

The Endless Frontier is first at 6:00 tonight. On tonight's show, learn more about a study from UNC that challenges long-held beliefs about how bubonic plague is transmitted. Plus, we'll discuss an African species of fish that offers a new model system for studying aging and experiements with mice that reveal new genetic interactions that help determine sex.

The news is next at 6:30. For tonight's show, we join Deutsche Welle for "Magic Moments," an episode of its Spectrum series. This program starts with a look at what scientists expect to learn from NASA's New Horizons spacecraft, which has finally reached Pluto. Later in the show, we'll hear more about the effort to establish a high-speed broadband network in rural India and a new filtration system that might save millions of people in Bangladesh from poisoning by high levels of arsenic in well water. Finally, the program shares one organization's goal to increase awareness of statues by making them talk and a New Zealand company's new product that brings science fiction to life--the personal jetpack.

Then sports is up at 7:00. Tonight, Martin Kang has the latest in basketball action at Duke and NCCU. He'll also have a look at Duke's Lacrosse season and report the results of last weekend's G.O.U.G.E. Wrestling event in Durham. Finally, in a report called "March Madness Picks: The Wisdom of Math? Or a Cat?" from New Hampshire Public Radio's Rebecca Lavoie, we'll learn how to pick the perfect March Madness bracket.
