Top best answers to the question «Would a human burn up entering the atmosphere»

Short answer: Yes, as long as you're going slow enough. Long answer: Great question! In theory, you could make a 'cold' re-entry. The reason that things like satellites and asteroids burn up is because they have huge velocities when they enter the atmosphere; I'm talking astronomical speeds, like kilometers per second.
