This intravehicular glove was made for Neil Armstrong, who wore it during his Apollo 11 mission in July 1969. It was constructed with a bladder, dip molded from a hand cast of his hand, with 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 finger-less glove restraint was attached to the bladder at the wrist and enclosed the entire hand excluding the fingers and thumb.

Transferred from NASA in 1971.
