Fisher Space Pen has announced the debut of a new space pen in honor of NASA’s planned return to the moon. The pen, the AG7 Nickel Titanium Moonwalker Space Pen, represents Fisher Space Pen’s commitment to a new era of space travel, continuing to serve the needs of NASA and its commercial and international partners. The Moonwalker Space Pen is constructed of solid brass, finished in nickel titanium with a retractable side release button and sturdy writing point. All of their pens are proudly made in the United States. Like all their other remarkable pens, the Moonwalker Space Pen comes with a pressurized refill. This permits it to write upside down, under water, in extreme temperatures and over almost any surface. The pens last approximately three times longer than the average ballpoint pen.
“Fisher Space Pen has been a part of crewed space travel for over 50 years, and we are thrilled to be going back to the Moon,” says Matt Fisher, Vice President. “We also remember and honor the space pioneers that paved the way for today’s intrepid space voyagers. My brother Paul and I recently sat down with Col. Walter “Walt” Cunningham, Apollo 7 Lunar Module Pilot, and last living member of the Apollo 7 crew, the first to use the Fisher Astronaut Space Pen in zero gravity to recount his experiences aboard the historic mission. We took the opportunity to gift Col. Cunningham our newest Fisher AG7 Moonwalker Nickel Titanium Astronaut Space Pen.”
The Fisher Space Pen brand has become an iconic symbol of American technology and design worldwide. For example, its famous Bullet Space Pen is part of the permanent collection at New York’s Museum of Modern Art as an example of classic industrial design. It has also become part of American pop culture and the subject of hundreds of fan videos and several films and TV programs, including an episode of the hit series “Seinfeld”.
Fisher Space Pen is a small, family-run business located in Boulder City with more than sixty-five full time employees. The new Moonwalker Space Pen can be purchased from their showroom, located at 711 Yucca Street or online HERE. The company maintains a retail website where all available pens can be purchased HERE.
