The Fisher Space Pen is the pen that went to the moon. Again and again. Since Apollo 7 in 1968, The Fisher Space Pen has been NASA's pen. For you, it writes upside down and can help you do crosswords and sudoku lying down.

  

Also known as the Fisher Bullet Pen because of its shape, the Space Pen writes on adverse surfaces such as plastic and laminex , as well as paper. As a Space Pen should, it also works in weightlessness, underwater, upside down and in extreme heat & cold – thanks to its pressurised cartridge and tungsten carbide ball. Its ridged barrel also stops your hand slipping. 

 

This is the only pen ever to have its own Seinfeld episode. The cartridge generally lasts 2-3 times as long as regular ballpoints and refills are easily available

 *Crucial trivia: It's an urban myth that the Americans spent millions developing this and  the Russians used pencils. Truth is, this was developed by Paul Fisher using a spare couple of million dollars he had after inventing the universal pen re-fill. NASA first bought them in 1965 - for what was to be one of the world's great product plugs. The Russians followed suit from 1967.
