Pouch, Defecation Glove, Gemini V
- McDonnell Aircraft Corp.
- Zippered pouches like these ones allowed astronauts to secure equipment inside the spacecraft during the mission. According to the printing on the pouch, these ones from Gemini V were used to store gloves used in handling fecal containment bags. In the weightless and cramped confines of an orbiting spacecraft, small objects need secure locations so as not to hinder the work of the astronauts when not being used. NASA also uses Velcro on small items for short term attachment to the inside of the spacecraft.
- NASA transferred this pouch to the Museum with the Gemini V spacecraft in 1968.
