Stars which are eight times or more massive than our Sun end their lives in a most spectacular way; they go supernova. A supernova is the most powerful and luminous explosion in space. Explosions so stellar they are bright enough to briefly outshine their entire galaxies, with outbursts containing mind-boggling heat and force helping to heat up the interstellar medium, distribute heavy elements throughout the galaxy, and accelerate cosmic rays. Supernova remnants are extremely important for the understanding of our galaxy. The deaths of these distant stars give us life. Astronomers have been able to confirm that most oxygen in the universe comes from supernova explosions. The amount of oxygen generated from these explosions can fuel thousands of solar systems.
Given their color, vibrancy, energy, and connection to our world, these stars that go out with a bang, so to speak, are the perfect representation of the bullet space pen that is so attractive and so unique it leaves you awe-struck by its iridescent beauty.
When closed, Bullet Space Pens are the perfect size to carry in your wallet, pocket, purse, car glove box, organizer, or toolbox. When open, it's a full sized, evenly balanced writing instrument.
The original Bullet Space Pen was conceived in July of 1948. Paul Fisher was soon machining a new pen design shaped from solid aluminum. It became our first Fisher ball point pen, the 400 Bullet Pen, and arguably the most popular pen of the twentieth century. This pen is now all brass with a chrome finish with a clip.
Cited as an outstanding example of industrial art, the classic design of the Fisher Bullet Pen has been exhibited for years in the New York Museum of Modern Art. The Bullet's timeless styling has been the topic of many art books and magazine articles. Often imitated, but never duplicated, the Fisher Bullet continues to be our most popular pen.
