Glove, Right, A7-L, Intravehicular, Apollo 10, Young, Flown

This pressure glove is part of the pair made for and worn by Command Module Pilot John W. Young, Jr. during the Apollo 10 mission in which he was the first human to fly solo around the moon.

The glove was made with a pressure bladder, dip molded from a cast of the astronaut'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 for ease of movement, with anodized aluminium 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.

Transferred from NASA to the National Air and Space Museum in 1972.
