Collection Item Summary:

This glove is part of the pair worn by John Young, Commander of the Gemini X flight in July 1966. The mission was to dock with the drifting Agena from the Gemini VIII flight, thus achieving the first double rendezvous in space.

G4-C gloves were constructed with high temperature (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, and they were equipped with finger lights or battery pack.

Transferred to NASM from NASA - Manned Spacecraft Center in 1968.
