20 All-Time Greatest Hits!
The space program has done more for America than put a flag on the moon and give MTV the template for that bullshit award they give away each year. It's a high-technology industry which spawns good and services beneficial to mankind. Examples include Velcro, global positioning systems, and the integrated circuit.
Fountain pens do not work in space. When astronauts needed a writing mechanism that would work in a zero-gravity environment, NASA spent millions of dollars developing the ball-point pen.

When the Russians needed a writing mechanism that would work in a zero-gravity environment, they used pencils.
Sometimes, simpler is better.
