Abstract : Time scores were recorded of a subject donning and doffing a Phase B Apollo Prototype Space Suit inside and outside a donning bag, while in the weightless condition. The total times for each of the three donning trials were, in order, 181 seconds (inside the bag), 165 seconds (outside the bag), and 154 seconds (inside the bag). Difficulties encountered in donning the suit are mentioned. The total time for the one doffing trial (inside the bag) was only 95 seconds. Neither the bag nor the space suit was vented or pressurized for the tests. (Author)
