What's so great about Fisher Space Pens?
They write at any angle, they will NEVER leak in your pocket, they never dry out, they will write on damp and oil stained paper, they will work in extreme heat and cold, and even in the vacuum of Space - which is why NASA took the Fisher Space Pen to the moon. All Fisher Space pens sold by JustWrite are genuine Fisher Space Pens made in the USA by the Fisher Space Pen Co.

How do they work?
Ordinary ballpoint pens rely on gravity to feed the ink and there is an opening in the refill to allow air to replace the ink as it is used.
Fisher Space Pen refills are completely sealed and pressurised with liquid nitrogen which feeds the ink to the ball point. They do not need gravity to work which is why they can write in any position - sideways and even upside down. echo"
Because they are completely sealed they will never leak - no more ruined shirts or jackets ! They they will not dry out like ordinary pens where the ink is exposed to the air giving them a shelf life of 100 years instead of one to two years like ordinary ballpoint pens.
The ink in Fisher Space Pens is a special visco-elastic semi-solid ink and as the ultra-hard tungsten carbide ball rotates, it liquefies the ink allowing it to write smoothly and dependably on most surfaces, even under water.
This special ink and the high precision manufacturing tolerances of the ball point and socket allows Fisher Space Pens to work reliably in the most extreme environments - freezing cold, extreme heat, underwater, even in the vacuum of space.
They will write over wet patches and oil stains making them ideal for anyone who needs to write outdoors in all kinds of weather or in any extreme environment.
NASA have been using Fisher Space Pens since the Apollo 7 mission in 1968 and so have many Russian Cosmonauts on the Soyuz flights and the MIR Space Station. Prior to this Astronauts had to use pencils in space.
The Original Chrome Plated Astronaut Space Pen is the pen used on the Apollo 7 mission in 1968.
The Fisher Space Pen was developed by Paul Fisher, founder of the Fisher Space Pen Company and was patented in 1965. Paul Fisher also developed the "Universal Refill" in 1953 which could be used in most ballpoint pens available at that time.
In the 1950s there were only a few dozen different types of ballpoint pens on the market but today there are thousands - and today there is still a Fisher Space Pen Refills available to fit most quality ballpoint pens.
