Did  you know that during the first flight of an American into space, Al  Shepard was strapped into the Mercury-Redstone rocket for over four  hours on a hold before the flight was launched? He had to pee, and there  were no places to urinate included in the rockets back then so he had  to pee in his suit. After relieving himself, because his chair was  angled back, most of the urine pooled on his back inside the suit. THAT MAN IS A HERO.
