    Mahidol University sends scientists to Antarctica

    BANGKOK (NNT) - Mahidol University has sent scientists to install cosmic ray measuring equipment in Antarctica in order to study the climate that affects all humans.


    Mahidol University has announced its dispatch of scientists to Antarctica under the concept of “Aim Far: Research in Antarctica”, which is a collaboration of educational institutions both domestic and international, especially those in Australia that are providing financial support for this research.


    Mr Alejandro Rivera Saiz, a lecturer at the Department of Physics, and Mr Pradiphat Muangha, a PhD student in Physics, left on their journey on January 11, 2020. They will install cosmic ray measuring equipment at Mawson station in Antarctica, to study the climate and build a collaborative network with the international cosmic ray and space physics research groups, that will help enhance the group’s capacity to carry out research in space physics in Thailand.

    Would Thailand have bothered otherwise?

    Tis indeed but SNAFU is the norm as you well know.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Well, better than wasting tons of public money on "mega-projects", I suppose. Wonder who is actually funding this "climate study" project though?

    Given the scientist who is participating in this study specialises in solar physics among other fields of particle physics with emphasis on proton scattering from colliding nebulae in near field galaxies, I rather think reducing the purpose of the expedition to " climate study" is yet more simplistic tosh so prevalent in what passes for the Thai media jumping on the bandwagon of pandering to those seduced by their armageddon weather neuroses.
