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 years of testing by NASA, and has been used on all manned space flights since then.
The design and construction of this pen has not changed in 36 years. The pen you buy today is exactly the same as the one taken to the moon in 1969. It is a heavy pen, and the weight rests reassuringly in your hand as you write. The AG7 is made from solid brass with an extremely hard chrome plating. It has a very positive and substantial feeling click mechanism. You press down on the top to extend the refill, and press the side button to retract the refill. It's special design assures you that you'll always retract the point before you slide it in your pocket. It's constructed of all brass and steel components of the highest quality and is made in the USA.
Fisher Space Pen rose to prominence when founder Paul Fisher invented a retractable, pressurised pen called the Anti-Gravity 7 (#AG7) that worked flawlessly in zero gravity aboard the first manned Apollo mission in 1968. Five decades later the company continues to thrive with pens still flown aboard every manned space flight. The Bullet model remains the most popular of the Fisher Space Pen range, small enough to comfortably fit in the pocket when capped and when the cap is fitted to the back of the pen (posted), it creates a full size, comfortable writing instrument. The most resilient, widely applicable pen there is, the Fisher Space Pen is up to perform in any tasking environment.
