Apollo Drinking Device

Beginning with Apollo 13, a canteen was added to the astronauts spacesuits that would allow the crew members to drink while they worked on the moon. Attached by a Velcro strip to the inside of the helmet neck ring of a lunar spacesuit, an astronaut could dip his head down to drink water or reconstituted juice through the small rubber straw.
