Glove, A1-C, Left, Eisele

This glove was worn by astronaut Donn Eisele during training sessions before the first Apollo mission. The glove has the A1-C designation as the style of glove to be worn to the moon had not been decided upon.

A-1-C gloves were designed for heavy duty service with an outer glove made of white nylon, as protection for the inner glove. 1.15 volt fingertip lights with independently powered 30 hr, 1.5 volt battery pack were attached to the first two fingers which were operated by moving a toggle switch on each hand.

NASA transferred it to the museum.
