    The vehicle starts significantly entering the atmosphere at about 400,000 ft (120 km) at around Mach 25 (8.2 km/s).

    Space travel is going to suck. We're going to be broadsided by some retard ricer who is traveling in excess of 32,000mph in his Hyundai Ascent.



    You know.. If two cars traveling 32,000 miles per hour had a head on, I'd be willing to bet that the shockwave would destroy everything within a block radius.

    lmao... I thought it was interesting... I am really into the space program... maybe if I'd stayed in school, joined the Air Force, had perfect vision and perfect grades, I could have been an Astronaut.
