Assembly, Urine Hose, Apollo 11
This urine collection and transfer hose was part of the equipment aboard the Command Module "Columbia", the Apollo 11 mission of July 1969.
Liquid waste (urine) was collected in a Urine Collection Device, used in common by the crew of an Apollo spacecraft. Roll-on cuffs provided personal sanitary protection for the astronauts using the collection device. The urine was then transferred through the Urine Transfer Tube to a tank, from which the liquid waste was vented into space.
NASA transferred this hose to the Museum in 1970.
