History of the "Thai National Science Day"
His Majesty King Rama IV, known to foreigners as King Mongkut, devoted his spare time to study of astronomy and was able to predict the accurrence of the total solar eclipse, at Wa Kor sub-district in Prachuap Khiri Khan province on August 18, 1868 over a century ago-so well as if he were equipped with modern scientific equipment. In 1982, the Bangkok Bicentennial Anniversary Year, the Thai Government designated him the “ Father of Science of Thailand ” . The Thai Scientists are all grateful to him for his pioneering spirit in introducing modern science to national development. Therefore, they all reached a consensus to make August 18 of every year the “Thai National Science Day”.
