The Ball Point Pen

When NASA started sending astronauts into space, they quickly 
discovered that ball-point pens would not work in zero 
gravity. To combat this problem, NASA scientists spent a 
decade and $12 billion developing a pen that writes in zero 
gravity, upside-down, on almost any surface including glass 
and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 C. 

The Russians …
