The Lunar Science Institute in Houston, Texas, was established March 1, 1968, to provide a base for academic scientists participating in the lunar exploration program, working in the Lunar Receiving Laboratory, or using the facilities of the Manned Spacecraft Center devoted to the study of the moon. It will serve as a center for analysis and study of lunar data obtained as a result of NASA unmanned missions. The Institute is expected to be an influential demonstration of university-government collabroation in the laboratory. The National Academy of Sciences has accepted interim responsibility for its operation until a consortium of universities can be formed to direct it.
