Gemini G4C Space Suit

This G4C Type was developed for the astronauts of Project Gemini. One purpose of this project was to determine whether an astronaut could emerge from the 2-man spacecraft and perform useful work, protected only by his space suit. This extra-vehicular activity adanced the role of the Gemini suit from a backup to a prime system.
