Lot 26: Skylab FLOWN Pen

Skylab FLOWN Pen
Skylab FLOWN Pen

Description

From the personal collection of the late Skylab astronaut Bill Pogue, this NASA-issued Fisher AG7 "anti-gravity" Space Pen spent 281 days in space. The pen was carried into space aboard the Skylab station, which launched on May 14, 1973, six months prior to the first astronauts' arrival. Pogue used the pen in space aboard the Skylab station during Skylab 4, which lasted from Nov. 16, 1973 - Feb. 8, 1974.

The 5" long silver pen is engraved with part number "SEB12100051-208" and serial number is "1269." There is a small piece of Velcro tape near the top of the pen, which helped make it easier to store in outer space. The pen has two buttons. The main button, common to the top end of all retractable pens, extends the pen's ballpoint nib. A separate button on the side of the pen disengages the internal catch, allowing the pen to retract.

This lot is also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Astronaut Scholarship Foundation Executive Director Tammy Knowles.
