    Whatever happened to...?

    The Space Master Plan for Thailand ..?

    5. Vision of Space Development for Thailand
    This decade-long Space Development Plan was drafted with a vision
    of Thailand being the space leader among ASEAN countries. In other words,
    Thailand will set an example of clever space applications to enhance the
    country’s international competitiveness and quality of life. Furthermore, Thailand
    will become the leader in space capacity building, i.e. in space manpower
    development and in space R&D. Moreover, Thailand will become the leader in
    the commercial applications of space activities.

    At the Siam Bayview Hotel in South Pattaya, a meeting was held prompted by comments from the Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra regarding future plans to initiate a space program here in Thailand. He has already set up an astronaut training program and intends to send Thai’s into space within the next 10 years. This meeting was convened by the legal branch of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and was chaired by Khun Wirapan. Thailand will have to submit their proposal to enter space with the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space which is a branch of the United Nations set up in 1959 to review the scope of international cooperation in peaceful uses of outer space, and to study legal problems arising from the exploration of outer space.

    I thought Thais had already been into space a long time ago?....
