History of the Fisher Space Pen

I keep my [Fisher Space Pen](http://www.spacepen.com) in my pocket everywhere I go, and use it all the time for taking notes. The Smithsonian’s Design Decoded blog has [an article](http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/design/2013/01/the-fisher-space-pen-boldly-writes-where-no-man-has-written-before/) that talks about the genesis of the pen, its creator, and dispels a couple of myths about it.
