The bullet-shaped Fisher Space Pen is the iconic version of this well-tested pen. The tungsten carbide ball point tip and thixotropic ink in a hermetically sealed and pressurized ink cartridge (at nearly 35 psi) enables this pen to write in extreme conditions: upside down, in a vacuum, in freezing cold, in boiling heat... even underwater!
Invented by Paul Fisher with NASA in mind, the pens first flew in 1967 on the Apollo missions. These pens are now a staple tool in all manned space flights, American or Russian.
