If you simply had a fiction board, you could close all the boards in the section "Politics" :D

During the 'Space Race' NASA spent millions of dollars designing a pen that astronauts could use in weightless conditions; Russian cosmonauts used a pencil !.

science fiction is where all the inventions are made from

for instance even though the russians used a pencil and the yanks made a pen, this in itself is an accomplishment. the technology made that defied gravity is amazing and in the future it could be applied/lead to something else.

I hate to break the news to you but there's no gravity up there! It's more a case of technology that attempted to defy the LACK of gravity.

I'll bet the Yanky ballpoints worked well upside down! :)

yes thats what i was trying to say, with no gravity and still be able to write is an accomplishment. obviously the ballpoint pens don't work up there coz otherwise they would have used them
