- ILC Industries Inc.
- This intra-vehicular glove is part of the pair made for astronaut Donald "Deke" Slayton, and was used as a back-up in the event of glove failure. "Deke" was the docking module pilot of the historic ASTP (Apollo-Soyuz Test Project) Mission in July 1975.
- It is constructed of a rubber/neoprene-compound bladder, dip molded from a cast of his hand, the interior of which has an inner core of nylon tricot. There is a convoluted section for ease of movement incorporated into the wrist with anodized aluminum connectors for attachment to the spacesuit. A finger-less glove restraint, designed to help maintain the glove's shape, is attached to the bladder at the wrist and enclosed the entire hand excluding the fingers and thumb.
- Transferred to the National Air and Space Museum from NASA in 1978.
