The crew of NASA’s Apollo 11, the first manned mission to land on the moon, fulfilled the goal set by President John F. Kennedy, that the United States would reach the lunar surface by the end of the 1960’s.
Launched on July 16, 1969
Apollo 11 crew members:
Commander Neil Armstrong,
Command Module Pilot Michael Collins,
Lunar Module Pilot Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, Jr.
On July 20, Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to land on the moon, while Collins orbited above.
This Special Edition Bullet Space Pen has the same pressurized ink refill cartridge used on the Apollo 11 Mission. It defies gravity, writes in the harshest of environments, and is still used on all manned space flights today.
“That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”
Neil Armstrong - July 20, 1969
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.
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. This pen is now composed of all brass with a chrome finish.
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.
