As we were cleaning out some of the storage areas of the centrifuge building, we came across a trunk that held an old suit.  We’ve had a few people look at it and have had it on display for the past ten months or so.  We are still trying to make a positive determination on it’s age and what it was used for.  You will note that the suit has a nozzle on the chest in addition to the nozzles on the hands and feet of the suit.  As a result of the nozzles, we are pretty sure it was used for pressure or G load testing in the centrfuge.  However, we are trying to fix it to a year and/or specific program.   Are there any former employees or test pilots out there who may have any insight into what we have?
