Glove, Right, A7-L, Intravehicular, Lovell, Apollo 13, Flown

This intra-vehicular glove is part of the pair that was made for astronaut Jim Lovell, Commander of the Apollo 13 mission in April 1970.

ILC Industries constructed the gloves of a rubber/neoprene-compound bladder, dip molded from a cast of his hand, the interior of which has an inner core of nylon tricot. There is a convoluted section for ease of movement incorporated into the wrist with anodized aluminum connectors for attachment to the spacesuit. A finger-less glove restraint, designed to help maintain the glove's shape, is attached to the bladder at the wrist and enclosed the entire hand excluding the fingers and thumb.

Transferred to the National Air and Space Museum in 1973.

Transferred from NASA, Johnson Space Center.
