Apollo 13 50th Anniversary Chrome Bullet Space Pen

NASA’s Apollo 13 mission in 1970 has stood for decades as a powerful testament to the determination and perseverance of the human spirit in the face of extreme adversity and seemingly insurmountable odds. We honor the bravery of the crew, as well as the tireless efforts of all those who were involved in returning them safely to Earth 50 years ago with this commemorative Fisher Space Pen.

  • Launched on April 11th, 1970
  • Apollo 13 crew members:
    Commander Jim Lovell,
    Command Module Pilot Jack Swigert,
    Lunar Module Pilot Fred Haise

“There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened.  To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen.”
  • Mission Commander Jim Lovell

Paul Fisher’s legacy embodies the definition of success with his creation of the sealed and pressurized ink cartridge, which for decades has aided the efforts of all astronauts in collecting data throughout every manned flight into space since 1967.  Paul knew the challenges ahead of creating a ball point pen that functioned in a zero-gravity environment, but he never allowed those challenges to deter his course.  More than five decades later, Fisher Space Pen joins millions around the world to celebrate the courageous accomplishments of the crew from the Apollo 13 mission. 
This Special Edition Bullet Space Pen has the same pressurized ink refill cartridge used on the Apollo 13 Mission - It defies gravity, writes in the harshest of environments, and is still used on all manned space flights today.

When closed, the Bullet Space Pen is the perfect size to carry in your wallet, pocket, purse, car glove box, organizer or toolbox. When opened it's a full-sized, evenly balanced writing instrument.

Each Bullet Space Pen will write upside down - at any angle, under water, through grease, in extreme temperatures (-30 to +250 degrees F), on almost any surface, three times longer than the average pen, and of course in the gravity free vacuum of space.
 
The original Bullet Space Pen was conceived in July of 1948 by Paul Fisher, who was soon machining a new pen design shaped from solid aluminum. This became our first Fisher ball point pen, the #400 Bullet Pen, and arguably the most popular pen of the twentieth century.

Cited as an outstanding example of industrial art, the classic design of the Fisher Bullet Pen has a place in the permanent collection in the New York Museum of Modern Art. The Bullet's timeless styling has been the topic of many art books and magazine articles. Often imitated but never duplicated, the Fisher Bullet Space Pen continues to be our most popular pen.
