Apollo glove assembly
Spacesuit inner gloves (left) consist of pressure bladders covered by Beta Cloth. EVA outer gloves are made of Beta Cloth, Mylar and a metallic mesh hand area. The thumb and fingertips of the glove are molded of silicone rubber to permit a degree of sensitivity. The inner gloves attach to the suit by pressure sealing rings, similar to those used in helmet to suit connections. The outer gloves served as a cover to protect from micrometeorites, abrasions and heat.
