Underwater Temperature Logger - Starmon mini!

Star-Oddi has manufactured and sold the Starmon mini temperature recorder since 2001.   Measurerements are stored in an internal memory, and each measurement is displayed with date and time when retrieved into the application software. It is known for its good quality and reliability for scientific studies in oceans and freshwater environments. The recorder has temperature accuracy better than +/-0.05°C, standard memory of 350,000 measurements, and battery life of 7 years. Battery is replaceable.

Starmon mini is available in a robust non-corrosive housing made of plastic or titanium. The logger is supplied with a cable and SeaStar application software, for starting the logger and for data download. Data is displayed in graph and table.  Star-Oddi has built a stock of units for quick deliveries of orders received in December. More details at our web site here.

  Wishing peaceful Holidays for everyone
- The IMAGINE Peace Tower in Reykjavík!

It is getting close to the Holiday season and we want to send warm season's greetings and wish for peaceful Holidays to everyone.

On October 9th 2007, Yoko Ono unveiled the IMAGINE Peace Tower on Videy Island, Reykjavik. The tower and Videy Island can be seen here from our offices, lighting up the late office hours.

Dedicated to the memory of Yoko's late husband John Lennon, the IMAGINE Peace Tower now shines as a beacon for World Peace. It reminds people to pray for peace and stability. Every year it will light up between October 9th (Lennon's birthday) and December 8th (the day of his death), on New Year's Eve, and other special occasions.

The IMAGINE Peace Tower is surrounded by more than half a million PEACE WISHES from people worldwide. The wishes are stored in capsules and buried surrounding the IMAGINE Peace Tower.

The tower's construction and installation is a collaboration between Yoko Ono, the City of Reykjavik, Reykjavik Art Museum and Reykjavik Energy. The electricity for the light comes entirely from the Hellisheidi Geothermal Power Plant.

See a short film about the IMAGINE Peace Tower, with Yoko Ono's greetings.
