Inflight Coverall Garment, Jacket, Cernan
- B. Welson & Co., United States of America
- Eugene A. Cernan
- This jacket is part of a four-piece inflight coverall assigned to astronaut Eugene Cernan for use during his Apollo 17 mission in December, 1972. However, it was never used.
- The complete garment consists of jacket, trousers and boots which had a circular Velcro patch on the soles. It is constructed of a Teflon-coated beta cloth which is highly fire resistant, and the "slippery" qualities of the fabric enabled the astronaut to don and doff the garment with ease in a weightless environment.
- The jacket had a US flag on the left shoulder and a NASA "meatball" logo on the upper torso. Flight garments also had a mission symbol attached to the upper torso.
- Transferred from NASA in 1979.
