Fisher Space Pen marks Apollo 11 50th with moon-flown material

A new limited edition, collectible pen is embedded with a piece of the history it helped write.

Fisher Space Pen has revealed its new Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Astronaut Pen and Coin Set, featuring material that flew on the first moon landing mission. Each pen includes a piece of pressure-sensitive polyimide tape that had been mounted on the exterior of the Apollo 11 command module, "Columbia."

"The space flown material is 'Kapton' foil, and it served as a protective thermal insulation for the command module 'Columbia.' This rare artifact floats in a water-clear acrylic dome sealed into the pen's cap," describes Fisher Space Pen on its website.
