A Visit from Outer Space

We at Star-Oddi got the honour of having Bjarni Tryggvason, the only Icelander who has traveled to outer space, come visit us a few weeks ago. Bjarni is an engineer and a former NRC/CSA astronaut. He served on the space shuttle mission STS-85 in 1997, a 12-day mission to study changes in the Earth's atmosphere. He also participated in training future astronauts.

NASA and Star-Oddi's History
Star-Oddi is not unfamiliar with NASA, as our online CTD logger was used by NASA in examining life forms 800 meters under the Antarctic glacier which had been well preserved for 250 thousand years under the ice.
