Glove, Left, G5-C, Lovell, Training
This glove is part of the pair worn by James Lovell during training sessions prior to the historic Gemini 7 flight in December 1965. The mission was a 14 day orbital mission during which Gemini 7 and Gemini 6 performed successful rendezvous and docking maneuvers and proved that man could live and work in space for an extended period of time.
G5-C gloves were constructed in a very similar fashion to both the G3-C and G4-C gloves: HT nylon, a strap and buckle adjustment around the wrist and palm, and the red and blue anodized aluminum wrist disconnects. There is a steel palm bar in between the layers of the gloves. There are no finger lights or battery pack.
Found in collection. Donor unknown at this time. Found on NASM premises.
