Collection and Transfer Assembly, Urine, Apollo 9

This urine collection and transfer device was part of the equipment assigned for use by one of the three astronauts aboard the Command Module of the Apollo 9 spacecraft.

Liquid waste was collected in the yellow rubberized portion of the device, which was worn under the astronaut's clothing. As the device was designed only for men, roll-on cuffs provided personal sanitary protection in the weightless environment of space. The urine was then transferred through the transfer tube to a tank, from which the liquid waste was vented into space.

Transferred from NASA - Johnson Space Center to the Museum in 1974.
