The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) said the University of Western Ontario will represent the Canadian lunar science community as the agency’s first international partner.

“We are extremely proud of our status as the first NASA Lunar Science Institute affiliate outside of the United States,” said Ted Hewitt, vice president of research and international relations for the University of Western Ontario. “We look forward to working with our colleagues throughout the institutes’s organization and at the Canadian Space Agency conducting this world-class research.”

The Lunar Institute will develop the next generation of lunar scientists, expanding research and education about the moon, and provided technical assistance for NASA’s next phase of scientific exploration of the moon.
