Retro 51 Tornado POP Series Rollerball Pen, Enterprise Space Shuttle

Limited Edition of 1,958 Serially Numbered Pens, #1209

According to Astronaut Fred Haise, Commander of three successful free flights and independent landings of the Space Shuttle Enterprise, “The test flights with the Space Shuttle Enterprise provided several important benefits to the overall Space Shuttle Program. They served to generate positive NASA media during the gap between Apollo Soyuz and the delayed first orbital mission.” The success of the Enterprise’s missions allowed for future Space Shuttle travel and provided a beneficial “Early identification of problems and maturing of the challenging new multi computer digital system,” said Commander Haise.  The Space Shuttle Enterprise and future Space Shuttle missions re-ignited the country’s passion for space travel and inspired a new generation.

The Enterprise Space Shuttle's graphics are printed on the Tornado's stainless barrel that is protected by a gloss varnish and finished with black nickel accents. Each Tornado is engraved with a limited edition number in a series of 1958. This number is significant for the year that NASA was created. The top disc has the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation's (ASF) logo and it's loaded into a graphic commemorative tube.

The pen is fitted with a smooth flowing rollerball refill that is retracted with its patented knurl twist-top. Replace the rollerball with any readily available Parker-style ballpoint refill and your Tornado is now a ballpoint pen. You'll find the Retro 51 capless rollerball refills in our Retro 51 refill section and the Schmidt P900 ballpoint refill for this pen in our store under Refills. Gift packed in the Retro 51 gift tube. Retro 51 model number ZRR-2137ASF. Individual pens are serially numbered.
