“Fisher’s development couldn’t have come at a more opportune time. The space race was on, and the astronauts involved in the Mercury and Gemini missions had been using pencils to take notes in space since standard ball points did not work in zero gravity. The Fisher cartridge did work in the weightlessness of outer space and the astronauts, beginning with the October, 1968 Apollo 7 mission began using the Fisher AG-7 Space Pen and cartridge developed in 1966.”

The original Astronaut Space Pen is a great writing tool with a great design; it shouldn’t fail you at low temperatures nor at whatever angle you happen to need it at.
