A-12 FLIGHT GLOVES

Developed by Lockheed under the ironic codename OXCART, the A-12 cruised at more than three times the speed of sound, creating such friction against the atmosphere that the air surrounding the plane often reached 400°F. Its camera could photograph the ground from 90,000 feet above. (Courtesy of Pacific Science Center)
