This is the only pen that writes in extreme heat or cold, under water, over most grease and at any angle. The original was first used by NASA astronauts. Unlike regular pens, this patented, nitrogen-pressurized cartridge with thixotropic ink does not require gravity to ensure ink flow. Metal with laser-engraved Smithsonian logo. 3.75"l.
The original pens of this type used by the astronauts are on view in the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
