50 years ago on July 20, 1969, the crew of NASA’s Apollo 11 made history, becoming the first manned spaceflight to land on the moon. The Fisher Space Pen was first used on the Apollo 7 space mission in 1968 after 2 years of testing by NASA, and has been used on all manned space flights since then. The Space Pen refill is pressurized and designed to write under zero-gravity as well as extreme weather. For the 50th anniversary, Fisher releases this limited special edition of their model AG7, which is the original model used on Apollo 11 and many other missions. The history behind this pen is iconic, and we love the history this pen carries.
Cited as an outstanding example of industrial art, the classic design of the Fisher Bullet Pen has a place in the permanent collection in the New York Museum of Modern Art. The Bullet's timeless styling has been the topic of many art books and magazine articles. Often imitated but never duplicated, the Fisher Bullet Space Pen continues to be our most popular pen.
The pen writes nice. The refill pushes the ink out smoothly, and because of the design of the tip, you can write in a wider range than typical finer tip pens. We also like the finish of this particular style. Matte blank, simple, portable with a slight weight.
Fisher Space Pen's Apollo 50th Anniversary Limited Edition with Coin Set features 24 karat gold engraving, a coin and a space-flown foil from Apollo 11 sealed into pen's cap.
