The sign accompanying Apollo 1 glove mold display. It reads


Apollo Glove Molds

These molds of Virgil I. "Gus" Grissom's right and left hands were used to make gloves for his Apollo 1 earth-orbit mission which he was to fly to test the Apollo hardware. The molds were made of natural latex rubber and were used to make gloves that were flexible enough to allow a variety of tasks, both inside and outside the spacecraft.

Some of the later gloves on later missions were intended for use outside the spacecraft, although no EVA was scheduled for the Apollo 1 mission.
