DETAILS

Fisher Space AG7 Orignal Astronaut Pen is the first pen in space. Its name (AG7 = Anti Gravity7) is a nod to the Apollo 7 space mission of 1968 for which it was first used (and in all subsequent Apollo , Soviet Soyuz and Mir space projects).

Charles Fisher invented his famous pressurised pen cartridge in 1966 which allowed writing on adverse surfaces, and upside down, and in zero gravity. It was for first used in his classic Fisher Bullet Pen. The Bullet pen’s earthbound advantage of small size & removeable cap was actually a disadvantage in space – it was too small and fiddly for astronauts wearing gloves.

Fisher made his revolutionary refill more astronaut friendly by making it cap-less with a click top, and a side release button.

Nowadays, this is a beautiful pen for non-astronauts. It still writes upside down, and on dodgy surfaces; the refill still lasts for 2-3 times other refills; the pen’s sleek shape and gleaming chrome finish still looks stunning.

*Crucial trivia: It’s an urban myth that the Americans spent millions developing this and  the Russians used pencils. Truth is, pencils are dangerous in space because graphite is combustible (and broken tips can float around and get in an eye) – crayons were better. The Space Pen 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 Soviets followed suit from 1967.
