CINCINNATI (AP) - The University of Cincinnati and NASA are partnering on space science research in an effort honoring the first man to walk on the moon.

UC President Santa Ono on Wednesday signed an agreement with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The school announced plans for the Neil Armstrong Space Science Institute.

Armstrong was an aerospace engineering professor at UC during the 1970s. He died last year at age 82.

His widow and two sons joined in the unveiling of a life-sized bas (BAHS) relief of Armstrong and previewed a campus exhibition about his life.

The school says the Institute will promote research, education in space science and engineering, and manage space-related data. The agreement connects UC researchers with experts at the NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, Calif.
