Description

Early 1000 series Space Shuttle glove TMG (Thermal Micrometeoroid Garment), with two ILC-Dover tags on the interior, reading: "Item: TMG, Glove Assembly, Part No. 0106-80538-09, Serial No. 038, Size 03 (C), Code ID 74897, MFG 2/80" and "Item: Glove Assembly, Left, Part No. 0106-10006, Size 03 (C), Spec. 0106-10006, CEI No. 106, Code Ident. 74897, Contract No. NAS 9-15150." With just some minor staining to the exterior, this glove appears unused—it is a fine example of the earliest Shuttle glove. Designed and manufactured by ILC Dover to support the earlier Space Shuttle mission EVAs, the TMG is the outermost layer of the space suit glove and provides insulation, radiation shielding, and protection from micrometeorites that could otherwise puncture the suit.
