    During the initial space flights, Nasa discovered that ballpoint pens didn’t work under zero gravity conditions. To beat the problem, Nasa spent 6 years and $2 million in designing a pen for use in space. The pen would work under zero gravity conditions due to the pressurized ink inside, it would work under sub zero conditions, underwater, on glass and virtually any surface known to man. The Russians used a pencil.

    True. I heard various amounts like $12 billion and $10 million. Either way, Nasa now uses kids in their research programs because it was a Russian kid that thought of it.

    "BAIL 'EM OUT! ????



    " Hell, back in 1990, the government seized the Mustang Ranch brothel in Nevada for tax evasion and, as required by law, tried to run it. They failed and it closed. Now we are trusting the economy of our country and our banking system to the same nit-wits who couldn't make money running a whore house and selling whiskey!!!!"

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but snopes disagrees that this is true..

    True, research for the pen was in excess of $1 million, but that was paid for by private investment. NASA only paid $2.95 for each "Space" pen. (Also, there are some very valid reasons why using a pencil in space is a bad idea.)
