Launched on July 16, 1969, the spacecraft carried Commander Neil A. Armstrong, Command Pilot Michael Collins and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin. On July 20, at, 4:18 pm EDT, while the entire world held its breath, the lunar landing craft named Eagle 1 safely touched down. Several hours later, Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to stand on the moon while Collins orbited above.
On that mission the astronauts used the Fisher Space Pen to fix an arming switch that had been broken and was crucial to bringing back the Astronauts safely back to earth.
Since 1968, the Fisher Space Pen has been issued to astronauts for NASA manned space flights and is still used today. Now, 500 people have the rare opportunity to own both the pen that went to the moon and a genuine artifact from the most historic of all space events.About Fisher Space Pens
The Fisher Pen refills were developed by Paul Fisher just after WWII due to the ball point refills of the time being leaky and unreliable. He then went on to develop his own range of pens.
Paul Fisher had a mission in mind for his pen - he introduced his new unique pen cartridge to NASA! The Fisher Pen underwent extensive testing and was subsequently approved for a trial mission in outer space. In 1968 the Fisher Space Pen was whole-heartedly approved and ordered for use by astronauts on ALL MISSIONS IN OUTER SPACE.
The Fisher Space Pen is still used today on all manned space flights.About Fisher Space Pen Refills
