Read in the B Post today a reference to a nuclear reactor at Chatuchak in Bangkok. What the...? Thailand is nuclear? The mind boggles Is that why the Burmese junta were so nice to Tacky, they were afraid if they upset him he'd push the big red button?
Okay, so seriously, I'm gonna guess its some kind of nuclear isotope medical facility, like Lucas Heights in Sydney - right? RIGHT? (Please say that's right...?).
Has anyone visited it? What happens if you chuck dead animals in the bubbling mixture? Do they go green and explode?
If 6 of the 7 dwarves were not Happy, does that prove that dwarves are generally an unhappy lot?
Can you provide a link Mike? I read the post religiously and didnt see a thing. They do have an office of Nuclear Industry or something on Wipawidee Rd. near Kasetsart University. But I havent been able to figure out what they do!!

As far as I know it's a missile silo.

Its the editorial "Shooting Stars over the gulf" on p8 of today's Bangkok Post third paragraph about Iran which includes a reference to the IAEA inspecting "the nuclear research at the Chatuchak reactor in Bangkok".
I don't have the actual link but it's probablt there somewhere. I'm looking at the actual old fashioned newspaper printed on actual paper here.
What I want to know is why there isnt a solar panel on top of every building in Bangkok.

That's it... A nuclear reactor in a country that doesn't even know how to spell the word... we're in deeper doodoo than most of us thought...
Imagine if Toxin sold the thing?

This is the Atoms for Peace office. I pass it regularly.
They onlyn have happy peaceful Buddhist atoms there so it's alright.
If the idea of Thailand having atomic facilities scares you then how about Disney??
What sort of reactor is it?
Power generation, very large, usually outside of population centers in case there is an accident.
Medical by products, like the Lucas Heights reactor in surburban Sydney.
Research reactor, university campus
Sounds like medical or research based to me."the nuclear research at the Chatuchak reactor in Bangkok"
We could all sit outside on banana lounges discussing the best way to rebuild a 4WD transmission and agree, through shared stories of conquests supporting our assertions, that there is no basis to the proposition that those least assured of their persuasions are the first to condemn others for theirs.
Looking through two almanacs, I can't tell that Thailand has a nuclear POWER facility, whereas the USA has 104 operational, Mexico 2, France about 59. Of course, Thailand doesn't have the capacity to make nuclear BOMBS.
While not being a member of the elite "Nuclear Club," Thailand has one aircraft carrier, I believe, which makes it a member of that elite club.

They dont have a damn nuclear reactor, who the hell would have built it?? Damn I hope I am right. I really dont think they have.
Yes, it's in that link that josh_ingu posted.
It has about 25 staff. Is that troubling - that one of YOUR students may be the Homer Simpson of Thailand in the near future?
So it's a research reactor.
What university campus?
Jatujack would be Kaset possibly. But they sure as hell dont have one.

The future of Bangkok????

This is the Lucas Heights reactor which produces medical isotopes as well as being used for research purposes.
If it's a research only reactor it would be smaller than this.
