This object is on display in the Space Race exhibition at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC.

These extra-vehicular (EV) gloves, designed by ILC Industries, were made for, and worn by David Scott during training sessions prior to his Apollo 15 lunar mission in July 1971.

Like the gloves flown and used on the moon, these gloves were constructed of an outer shell of Chromel-R fabric and thermal insulation to provide protection when handling extremely hot and cold objects. The blue fingertips were made of silicone rubber to provide more sensitivity. The gloves were attached to the spacesuit with the same locking mechanism as the intravehicular gloves.

Transferred to the National Air and Space Museum from NASA in 1983
