PAUL C. FISHER had been manufacturing ball point pens for several years when he heard John F. Kennedy’s challenge to land a man on the moon by the end of the decade. Fisher began thinking about how ordinary ballpoint pens would have trouble writing in space, but if a pen could be sealed and pressurized, it would keep the solvents from evaporating in the gravity-free vacuum of space and would also provide a reliable ink supply to the pen point. In 1966, after several years of experimentation, Fisher successfully developed his patented pressurized ink cartridge.
NASA approached Fisher in 1967, and after months of rigorous testing, they selected the AG7 Anti-Gravity Pen for our US Astronauts aboard the first manned Apollo mission in 1968 – Apollo 7.This Fisher Space Pen is still used today on every manned space flight, including NASA’s Space Shuttle Program Missions, the Mir Space Station and the International Space Station.
Today, Fisher Space Pen Company proudly celebrates its 50th Anniversary since our pens were first used aboard the maiden flight of Apollo 7.
“We are extremely proud to be celebrating 50 years in space,” says Cary Fisher, President of Fisher Space Pen.
“My father was a visionary who personifiedAmerican entrepreneurship and innovation.”
The Apollo 7 Mission and Paul Fisher both accomplished what they set out to do - qualifying the command and service module while clearing the way for future lunar orbit missions, and providing a safe, reliable writing instrument that performs under the extreme conditions of outer space.
