Apollo 13 Lunar Surface Gloves

On the lunar surface, astronauts wear pressurized body suits that protect them
from radiation, the absence of air, and other hazards. Special pressurized
gloves must be flexible enough to allow fingers to do their work. These gloves
were never used by the Apollo 13 astronauts because they never reached the
moon's surface. Notice that the fingertips are blue, and that the left glove
has a booklet attached to its cuff that spells out special procedures.
Different pages describe how to do extravehicular activities, how to exit the
craft, how to set up the flag, take photos, and much more. How hard do you
think it would be to work using these gloves?
