Retro 51 Tornado Smithsonian Rollerball Pen - Discovery


The Discovery Shuttle embodies well the 30-year history of human space flight from 1981 to 2011 and is on display at the James S. McDonnell Space Hangar. This rollerball pen has been etched and printed with details from this accomplished orbiting vehicle finished with black accents. 

The Space Shuttle Discovery first went into orbit in 1984 as part of NASA's Space Shuttle program, and was the third of five fully operational orbiters to be built, preceded by Columbia and ChallengerDiscovery carried the Hubble Space Telescope into orbit, and also performed both research and International Space Station assembly missions. It was finally retired in 2011, and is now on display at the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum annex in Virginia.

These pens are individually numbered but not limited in quantity.

The Retro 51 Smithsonian Collection - Discovery is a retractable rollerball pen with a trademarked knurled twist-top. The barrel is made of stainless steel. It is a well balanced pen which glides effortlessly across the page.

The Discovery Rollerball takes a Schmidt P8127 rollerball refill, or alternatively you could fit an EasyFlow refill if you prefer ballpoints.

Your Tornado pen comes in a matching attractive gift packaging which doubles as a deskpen holder.
