Orlan-DM Spacesuit Glove

Mission: N/A (training use only)   Crew: Unknown
Comment: The pressure table shows that the wearer could
spend more than five hours in open space.

This right-hand glove from an Orlan-DM EVA spacesuit is complete with an outer thermal-insulated nylon canvas, pebbled rubber palm and finger pads, rounded blue rubber fingertips, two Velcro flaps above the knuckles and a table of pressure levels with coordinating minutes on the wrist. The glove was soiled and its finger pads worn when it was used for neutral buoyancy training in an underwater facility.
