the Apollo 14 Spacecraft returned to Earth after a successful moon landing, NASA's third. Put another way, on this day in 1971 a Fisher AG7 pen made a happy return to Earth after it's third visit to the moon. Fisher Space pens have been on every manned space flight and recorded some amazing stuff. And they really are a big deal. I mean, a pen is essentially a fairly humble thing nowadays but this is no ordinary pen. The Ag7 Original Astronaut Pen does all of that amazing extraterrestrial stuff. It writes upside down, at any angle, underwater and within a narrow temperature range of -34 to +121 degrees Celsius. TIME Magazine has it in it's All TIME Top 100 Gadgets and any field worker, paramedic, nurse or traveller who has ever put one in their pocket basically never takes it out.
