Limited-edition pen to commemorate 40th anniversary of moon landing
Fisher Space Pen Co. is celebrating the historic moon landing of Apollo 11 on July 20 with limited edition AG7-40LE Space Pens. The 40th anniversary pen is designed as a replica of the historic anti-gravity model pen. It features a piece of “Kapton” foil, used as protective thermal insulation on the Apollo 11 Command module, Columbia, which carried the astronauts to the moon and back. This rare artifact floats in a water-clear acrylic dome sealed into the pen’s cap. The pen is finished with black titanium nitride, and detailed engravings in-layed in 24-karat gold include the pen’s sequential serial number, the names of the Apollo 11 crew and the iconic image of Neil Armstrong planting the American flag into the lunar surface. An innovative magnetic pedestal allows the pen to sit on its own “launch pad” for display when the lid is closed. The presentation case tells the historic story of the Apollo 11 mission as well as other monumental moments in human spaceflight. The ballpoint pen along with the display case is available in a limited edition of 1000 for just $800.
