Pen or Pencil in Space?

After hearing the Toothpaste Box Lean Story, Wilson Lam shared this story, which is even better at making the point (and more lean!). I also shared this at our Morning Meeting.

“Country A Space Center employed famous consultant and used millions of dollars to modify the ball pen so that the ink inside the pen could overcome the low gravity and the astronaut could write in the space ship and space capsule. Country B spent zero dollar in the same project as their astronaut used a pencil to write in the space.”
