Make a $5.00 "Space Pen" for your wallet
i heard the same thing and i looked it up to see if it was true .the graphite from the pencils end up getting into the equipment on the space shuttles and has a possibility causing problems that can even lead to deaths. i guess bc graphite can conduct electricity? and small amounts get sucked into vents too. going to who knows where lol.anyways the russians started using the american kind of space pens soon after america started using them.
