Glove, Left, G-3-C, Gemini, White

This is a part of a pair of gloves worn by astronaut Edward Higgins "Ed" White II during training missions for the Gemini program.

These gloves were originally constructed by the B. F. Goodrich Company, but were modified for Gemini use by the David Clark Company. The gloves were equipped with finger-lights on the first two fingers of each hand to assist the astronauts during maneuvers on the dark side of the Earth.

The gloves were constructed from HT (high temperature) nylon and has 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. The adjustable straps and palm bar were used to retain the shape of the pressurized glove on the hand.

NASA transferred the glove to the Museum in 1973.
