Fifty years ago today, the Apollo 11 mission put the first human on the moon. And as Quartz’s Tim Fernholz wrote this week, there is an abundance of fabulous content to consume in commemoration of this miraculous achievement: the new documentary Apollo 11;  Charles Fishman’s new book, One Giant Leap, a chronicle of the scramble to create a space travel program; Walter Cronkite’s narration of the event, via the CBS News archives. Today, we’d like to respectfully add this Twitter thread about peeing in space. Let's talk about peeing in space. Several people, in response to my NY Times essay, have said that women couldn't go into space because we lacked the technology for them to pee in space. — Mary Robinette Kowal (@MaryRobinette) July 19, 2019 On July 17, Mary Robinette Kowal, the author of said thread, published a story in the New York Times about gender bias in the space program, which apparently generated some commentary about women’s purported inability to urinate in zero-gravity. Kowal, who has apparently researched space urination and defecation extensively—she is also an award-winning author of science fiction, including two novels about space travel—unleashed a stream of factoids about what it takes to make it in space: The first American in space, Alan Shepard, had to just go in his spacesuit. No plans were made for what should have been a quick journey, but delays on the launchpad ensued. When you gotta go, you gotta go. So Shepard went, and then went into space. Launchpad delays meant that Shepherd hit a point where he needed to go. Badly. He asked Mission Control for permission to go in his suit. After consultation with flight surgeons & suit technicians, they gave him permission to do so. So he wet himself & still went into space. — Mary Robinette Kowal (@MaryRobinette) July 19, 2019 Later, astronauts were provided with condom-like sheaths that came in sizes small, medium, and large—but had to be renamed because no self-respecting astronaut would select the small size. The sheaths came in small, medium, and large. It turns out, the men were all saying that they needed a Large sheath. They did not. Subsequently, the astronauts called the sheaths were called "Extra-large," "Immense," and "Unbelievable." — Mary Robinette Kowal (@MaryRobinette) July 19, 2019 (Zero-gravity waste management specialist Donald Rethke said the sizes were actually renamed “large, gigantic, and humongous” in the documentary Moon Machines 2008.) Kowal noted that the system for Apollo involved astronauts using condoms attached to valves that could “have their urine sucked into the vacuum of space.” And when they left the ship for spacewalks, they were back to peeing into receptacles in their suits. For the spacewalks, the Apollo astronauts were back to condoms that collected the pee in a bag in the suit. Buzz Aldrin was the second man on the moon, but the first to pee there. — Mary Robinette Kowal (@MaryRobinette) July 19, 2019 It was only when NASA decided to send women into space that the system improved, thanks to the MAG, or maximum absorbency garment. “It’s a diaper,” wrote Kowal, adding that the men switched to it too, “because it was more comfortable and less prone to leave pee floating around the cabin than the condom sheath.” Finally, a decade later, NASA decides to send women into space. NOW they have a reason to come up with how to handle peeing in space if you don't have a penis. To launch and for a spacewalk, they developed the MAG Maximum Absorbency Garment. It's a diaper. — Mary Robinette Kowal (@MaryRobinette) July 19, 2019 Today, Kowal also live-tweeted the launch of three astronauts aboard a Soyuz bound for the International Space Station. She noted the beauty of the launch—”the hole it literally punched in the clouds!”—and provided insight about the astronaut’s suits. “Yes, they are all wearing MAGs,” she noted. “Space is glamorous, y’all.”

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The health department is evaluating the water system at a New York City Housing Authority apartment building in Harlem. Health officials say there have been two cases of Legionnaires’ disease at the Drew-Hamilton houses on Frederick Douglas Boulevard within the past year. Tenants can still use and drink the water, but residents with a higher risk for getting the disease are urged to take precautions. Individuals who have chronic lung disease are most at risk, along with those who have compromised immune systems. Earlier this month, the health department reported two people who live at 400 West 43rd Street – known as Manhattan Plaza – have recently been diagnosed with the illness that is often tied to contaminated building water tanks.
