    16. Returning to Earth

      Publishing date:

      August 6, 2003

      Given that a satellite may be travelling at speeds up to 28,000 kph, the friction forces it is subjected to on re-entering Earth’s atmosphere cause it to burn up. Spent spacecraft and hardware are destroyed intentionally this way by allowing them to fall back to Earth. However, it is possible—and may indeed be vital—to bring a spacecraft back to Earth intact, by taking certain precautions.
