Made in Boulder City, Nevada – the epicentre of the American Space Program – the Fisher Space Pen completely changed the way pens work. The company began in 1953 when Fisher made the first universal ballpoint-pen refill. Over time he improved the ink to remain solid (and pressurized) until the ballpoint action of writing. This amazing development allowed Fisher space pens to write in freezing cold, in searing heat, underwater, upside down and indeed in the zero gravity of outer space! The Space Pen has been on board all manned Russian and US space craft since 1969. Comfortable, lightweight and unfailingly dependable, Fisher Space Pens pay homage to space missions with great packaging and reliability.
