Pressure Suit, Gemini, G1-C, Grissom, Training
- This full pressure suit was designed for high-altitude use, and was constructed by the David Clark Company in the early 1960s. It was used during early training and development testing by astronaut Gus Grissom, prior to the final decision being made by NASA as to which suit would be used during the Gemini missions.
- The suit is constructed of two layers - an internal rubber/Neoprene pressure bladder, and an aluminized cover-layer, which was designed to provide thermal insulation and control of the "balloonning" effect of pressurization.
- Transferred from NASA - Manned Spacecraft Center in 1970.
