“Houston, do you read?” takes on a whole new meaning with a Fisher Space Pen.
This is the only pen on the market that has literally been to space and
back. Since 1967, it’s been on every manned mission with both American
and Russian astronauts.
With a Space Pen, you can write upside down, underwater, in freezing
temperatures, in boiling temperatures, over grease, and even in a vacuum
(!) with style. Not only is the pen as attractive as an earth-bound
model, it has a tungsten-carbide ballpoint which allows you to write for
longer, more cleanly, and more consistently. This is because the Space
Pen’s ink has been pressurised and filled with visco-elastic ink, unlike
regular ballpoint pens, which rely on gravity to function.
And now, to commemorate Apollo 11’s 40th Anniversary of the moon landing, Fisher have released a very special version of their famous Space Pen. Finished in brilliant chrome, this anniversary edition is engraved with an astronaut on the moon, American flag in hand, and is accompanied with the names of famed astronauts: Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins.
