Lot Details
LUNAR SURFACE SPACE SUIT GLOVE.
"Glove ASSY [Assembly], TMG [Thermal Micrometeriod Garment]," blueprint, International Latex Corporation, Dover, DE, June 12, 1966, with multiple revisions, 34 by 22 inches, scale "none."

Signed by Buzz Aldrin and Alan Bean with their mission numbers.
An early blueprint illustrating specifications of the glove which would evolve into the one used by Armstrong and Aldrin while on the lunar surface. Shown are side and back views of the full glove assembly. The A6L Apollo space suit evolved into the A7L which was used on the Apollo flights. The glove consisted of a large wrist blanket for protection of the pressure suit wrist ring, and a metal weave of Chromel R with latex finger tips around the palm and finger areas. Some A6L components never needed updating and were used with A6L ID numbers on flights. International Latex Corporation had the NASA contract for the A6L and A7L Apollo space suits.
