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 11, 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 Cap-O-Matic Space Pen has the same pressurized ink refill cartridge used on the Apollo 13 Mission - It defies gravity, writing in the gravity free vacuum of space, and of course, at any angle here on Earth. It writes in the harshest of temperatures (-30 to +250 degrees F) and environments including under water, through grease, on almost any surface, lasting three times longer than an average pen, and is still used on all manned space flights today.

The 775-13-50 is available in 6 colors: Black, Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, & Burgundy.
