This version of the Fisher Space Pen was tested for TWO years by NASA before being chosen for the Apollo 7 mission. Many decades (and trips to the moon) later, its design remains unchanged.
In the 1960s, inventor Paul C. Fisher developed the ‘Universal Cartridge Refill’, which is a sealed and pressurized ink cartridge that can write in any condition. In 1968, the Fisher Space Pen made its debut on the Apollo 7 mission because of its ability to write upside down, in zero-gravity conditions, under extreme temperatures — literally anywhere! Over 50 years later, Fisher Space Pen is still family-owned and is still the pen used on all NASA space flights.
This pen is designed for use with the Fisher Space Pen refill cartridges and is made of solid brass with chrome plating.
