During the heat

During the heat of the space race in the 1960's, NASA decided it needed a ball
point pen to write in the zero gravity confines of its space capsules.

After considerable research and development, the Astronaut Pen was developed
at a cost of $1 million. The pen worked and also enjoyed some modest success as
a novelty item back here on earth.

The Soviet Union, faced with the same problem, used a pencil.
