Glove, A7-L, Young, Training
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.
