This G3-C spacesuit was made for and worn by astronaut Thomas Stafford during the Gemini 9 mission in June 1966. Stafford served as pilot for the mission.
The suit was in the Extra-Vehicular (EV) configuration, and consisted of five major assemblies, the main torso, helmet, boots gloves and neck seal. Additionally, Stafford wore a constant wear garment and life vest assembly. The suit permitted freedom of movement and was equipped with communication and bio-medical transmission equipment.
NASA transferred the suit to the Museum in 1968.
