“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 intriguing retraction mechanism of the Telescoping Pen means that it never needs a lid – instead, pulling on the end of the pen exposes the ballpoint tip and creates a full length writing instrument, while pushing on it again retracts the tip. Made in full aluminium with a matte finish, this is a fantastic one-handed, compact pen.
Telescoping Space Pen features:
- Made in the USA.
- Body made from matte aluminium.
- Unique retraction mechanism means this pen never needs a lid.
- Pull on the end of the pen to expose the ballpoint tip; push it again to retract the tip.
- Withstands temperatures of -34°C to 121°C.
- Writes underwater, upside down, over most grease, and in a vacuum.
- Thixotropic ink in pressurised reservoir writes at any angle.
- Precision steel socket and tungsten-carbide ballpoint allow you to write cleanly and consistently.
- Presented in a Fisher Space Pen storage case.
