“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.
The Columbia was the first American space shuttle to leave Earth, but it wasn’t the last! Fisher’s Commemorative Edition Shuttle Space Pen pays homage to America’s five famous shuttles – the Columbia, the Challenger, the Discovery, Atlantis and the Endeavour – with its space shuttle programme crest, engraved in gold. A chromed, polished barrel accented with gold only makes this pen all the more special, as well as the included memorial coin.
