A fireproof material used in cosmonaut spacesuits. Lola cloth does not burn, but extinguishes fire automatically. The Soviets developed it in the 1970s for use in the pure-oxygen atmosphere of the Apollo spacecraft in the Apollo–Soyuz Test Project. By contrast, NASA astronauts involved in the project wore spacesuits whose fire-retardant cloth burned slowly.
