Glove, A7-L, Young, Training

Image of this Object

This intravehicular glove is part of the pair made for astronaut John Young for use during training sessions prior to his Apollo 10 Mission in May, 1969.

The Intra-vehicular gloves were identical in shape and structure as those worn during launch, and were made with a bladder, which was dip molded from a hand cast of the individual's hand. The interior had an inner restraint core of nylon tricot which had been dipped in a neoprene compound. A convoluted section for wrist movement was incorporated into the wrist, with red and blue anodized aluminum disconnects for attachment to the spacesuit. A finger-less glove restraint was attached to the bladder at the wrist and enclosed the entire hand excluding the fingers and thumb.

Transferred from NASA in 1978.
