Manned Orbiting Laboratory Suit

Note: This item is currently in storage.

The Manned Orbiting Laboratory program (1963-1969) was a USAF program for studying long-duration spaceflight. This model MH-7 training suit, produced by United Aircraft's Hamilton Standard Division, was a durable, cost-effective tool for preparing USAF astronauts for MOL missions in more advanced suits. MOL was to use USAF-modified NASA Gemini spacecraft to put two crewmen in a space station for up to a month.

Transferred from the 6750th Aerospace Medical Research Lab Support Group.
