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.

The urine was then transferred through the Urine Transfer Tube to a tank, from which the liquid waste was vented into space.
