    Background: On the final day of a 3-day official visit to Denmark, Sept 8, the King and Queen of Thailand were escorted by King Frederik and Queen Ingrid on a tour of the Danish nuclear research station of Risoe, near Roskilde. Accompanying the party was heir to the throne, Princess Margrethe.

    Danish atomic research scientist Niels Bohr was guide to King Bhumibol, Princess Sirikit and the Danish King and Queen on their tour round the establishment. Before entering the atomic reactor they placed special covers over their shoes to reduce the danger of dust penetration.

    The Danish Atomic Commission came into being in December, 1955, and was entrusted with the development of the peaceful use of atomic energy. Professor Niels Bohr leads the research team.
