Is Xmas,   the Thai equivalent of April 1?

Minister Anek Laothamatas announced on Thursday that Thailand will produce high-tech satellites in four years, before advancing to build a spaceship with a weight of 300 kilograms for a mission to the moon.

The ship will be powered by a xenon ion thruster, the same propulsion method used by Nasa for interplanetary space missions. The spacecraft will travel at 11 kilometres per hour to the moon, before slowing to enter lunar orbit at 2kph.

Thailand’s first lunar mission will be officially announced in January, Anek said.

"the spacecraft will travel at 11 kilometres per hour to the moon," so ::

distance to moon = 384, 400km  @ 11 Km/h = 34, 945 hrs or 1,456 days or just 4 days shy of 4 years, travel time.

yeah that sounds right

and then another 4 years to get back

and none of this happens for at least 4 years when they are gonna start to 'advance to build'

odds on this really happening?

But it will only weigh 300 kilograms. (I am sure Coss left that one for me)

I remember first time I went to Wat Dhammakaya for ironically work, they wanted a TV channel.

 

I couldn't help but think the Temples looked a lot like a Thai Girls boob

 

The sheer indulgence to wealth was over whelming, pat to pray for wealth and you'd be wealthy.

 

The Thai version of Born Again scam religions.

 

The vaults have incredible protection and contain a lot I am told
