Aldrin's Extravehicular Gloves
These gloves have an outer, cut-resistant shell of Chromel-R fabric across the
hands to prevent fatal air leaks caused by handling sharp objects, and
gauntlets to protect against solar heating. The blue fingertips were made of
silicone rubber to provide more sensitivity for touching.
These gloves were made by ILC
Industries of Dover, Delaware, which also made the A7L lunar space suits.
Aldrin, like other Moonwalking astronauts, had a separate set of gloves for
use inside the spacecraft while fully suited.
