Apollo 13 command capsule pilot Jack Swigert owned and used this mechanical space pencil, which still contains its original graphite. The pencil traveled into space with the crew before technical problems became so sever that Tom Hanks had to star in a film about them. The pencil is space flown though and it's up for auction from Nate D Saunders, with a starting price of $7,500.
