    This is not ok at all! There are no safety measures, precautions inside a tank on a mission? Unacceptable!

    Thats right.
    The sould be steel cylinders with oxygene enriched air
    coupled to breathing masks like in a commercial airplane,
    so if there is a fire in the hull the crew can breathe and
    extinguish the fire.
    What use to extinguish a fire by halon or other means like this
    if the crew suffocates?!
    What if the exit doors are blocked?
    Breathe with the auxiliary bottled air system for 30 minutes
    and await the engineers to weld you out.

    The funeral for Eliyahu Drori is at 5:00 at Har Herzl. He was an exceptional young man and our family loved him very much. He was the kind of young adult that you knew was pure goodness, always willing to lend a hand with a smile. He was true to the ideals of Torah and was always trying to forge a stronger connection to Hashem. A part of me still does not want to believe that I will never see him walk through my front door, or that he will not be dancing at my son’s wedding. This is so devastating…..
