Fisher Space Pen Original Astronaut Engraved July 20, 1969
Paul Fisher had been manufacturing better writing instruments with a devotion to accuracy, intellectual honesty and fairness long before the United States Space Program began. But when astronauts started to explore the reaches of outer space, Fisher realized that no existing pen could perform in its boiling hot vacuum. His common sense approach and practical experiments resulted in the invention of the sealed-pressurized Fisher Space Pen. After months of rigorous testing, NASA selected the Fisher Space Pen for use on all of the Apollo missions. They are still used on all manned space flights American and Russian.
Chrome Plated Astronaut Space Pen. This is the original Fisher Space Pen that was used on the Apollo 7 space mission in 1968 after 2 of years testing by NASA and has been used on all manned space flights since then.
