Warning Diode

The light blinked in a steady pattern, often enough to draw the eye without distracting it too much.

Great care had been taken in picking just the right shade of red for the glass over the small diode, the right balance between making sure that this warning was noticed, while not unduly worrying people. It was the first line of defense, as it were, the light would flash when the main oxygen tank got to a certain lowish point, giving plenty of time to investigate the issue.

But since by this point everyone on-board was long dead, it went unnoticed.
