Filter, Urine, Gemini 8
- Wintec Corp.
- The process of waste collection and disposal is complicated in a decreased gravity environment, necessitating equipment such as this urine filter from Gemini 8. Astronauts urinated through a rubber hose-like fitting, which connected to a filter and either collection bag or hose. Inside the metal tube, a filter trapped particulate matter from the urine to prevent clogging the opening of the urine dump nozzle.
- NASA transferred this filter to the Museum in 1968 along with other flown and unflown Gemini program equipment.
