NASA embarked on an expensive research and development program [in the 1960s]. Some time and a million dollars later (quite a lot of money at that time), they proudly presented their “astronaut pen,” which immediately went into service.
…Meanwhile, the Soviet space agency had solved its own pens-not-working-at-zero-gravity problem. They used pencils.
