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 Degrees.
The Russians used a pencil.

A pen company made the pen and spent $2 million dollars on research and development.
