Collection Item Summary:

This urine collection and transfer device was part of the equipment aboard the Command Module of the Apollo 11 mission in July 1969, and was assigned to command module pilot Michael Collins.

Liquid waste (urine) was collected in a Urine Collection and Transfer Device, worn by the astronauts, with roll-on cuffs providing personal sanitary protection. 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 to the Museum in 1970 with other Apollo 11 equipment.
