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 personified
American 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.
