At that time the opposition from the PM was strong. The elders allowed the matter to pass with a mention of the subject into the guiding principles...

If you design the refuelling activity to be safe while the engine(s) are running then there is no bar to hot refuelling. HTT-40 has achieved this; kudos to the designers. Similarly, c...
