Description


Space Shuttle Liquid Cooled and Ventilation Garment (LCVG), affectionately known as the 'spaghetti suit,' featuring a network of water transport tubing interwoven within the zip-up full-body spandex suit. ILC-Dover manufacturer's tags are sewn inside the collar, reading: "Item: LCVG, Part No. 0107-10007-04, Serial No. 3008, Size: Sml-Sht, Spec. 0107-10007, CEI No. 107…Contract No. NAS9-15150" and "Item: Garment Assy. LCVG, Part No. 0107-84029, Serial No. 30087, Size: 02 Sml-Sht." The crush-resistant ventilation ducts remain intact. Includes its NASA-JSC plastic bag with affixed cleaning label. In very good to fine condition, with some fraying to the fabric.

Space Shuttle astronauts wore the LCVG as part of their EVA suit in order to maintain a comfortable body temperature during their spacewalks. Cold water circulated through the flexible tubing, drawing heat away from the astronaut's body. The water returned to the Primary Life Support System (PLSS), where it was cooled in a heat exchanger before being recirculated.

Provenance: The Spaceflight America Museum and Science Center in Prince Frederick, MD.
