You may want to read this AMA from a sailor

The short of it is that they don't sleep.

If this is true it is very dangerous.

Remember a few years ago when a lot of Post Office guys were committing suicide because they were pushed too hard. It looks like they are pushing the limits of the Navy crew.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
