Collection Item Summary:

This glove is part of the pair worn by Frank Borman, Commander of the Gemini 7 flight in December 1965. The mission was a 14 day orbital mission during which Gemini 7 and Gemini 6 performed successful rendezvous and docking maneuvers and proved that man could live and work in space for an extended period of time.

G5-C gloves were constructed in a very similar fashion to both the G3-C and G4-C gloves: 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. There are no finger lights or battery pack.

The NASA - Johnson Space Center transferred the gloves to the Museum in 1968.
