Glove, Left, A7-L., Intravehicular, Apollo 12, Gordon, Flown

This intra-vehicular glove was made for and worn by Richard Gordon as Command Module Pilot of the Apollo 12 mission in November 1969.

IV gloves were made with a bladder 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 was incorporated into the wrist with anodized aluminum connectors for attachment to the spacesuit. A fingerless glove restraint was attached to the bladder at the wrist and enclosed the entire hand excluding the fingers and thumb. A blue wrist disconnect attached the glove to the suit.

Transferred to the National Air and Space Museum from NASA in 1971.
