Project Gemini Space Suit

Future moonwalker Neil Armstrong in his Gemini G-2C training suit. When Project Gemini came along, astronauts found it difficult to move in the Mercury spacesuit when it was pressurized; the suit itself was not designed for space walking so some changes had to be made. Unlike the “soft” Mercury suit, the whole Gemini suit was made to be flexible when pressurized.
