WHAT DOES RE-ENTRY VEHICLE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

re-entry vehicle

Atmospheric entry

Atmospheric entry is the movement of an object into and through the gases of a planet's atmosphere from outer space. There are two main types of atmospheric entry - uncontrolled entry, such as in the entry of celestial objects, space debris or bolides - and controlled entry, such as the entry of technology capable of being navigated or following a predetermined course. Animated illustration of different phases as a meteoroid enters the Earth's atmosphere to become visible as a meteor and land as a meteorite Atmospheric drag and aerodynamic heating can cause atmospheric breakup capable of completely disintegrating smaller objects. These forces may cause objects with lower compressive strength to explode. For Earth, atmospheric entry occurs above the Kármán Line at an altitude of more than 100 km above the surface while Venus atmospheric entry occurs at 250 km and Mars atmospheric entry at about 80 km. Uncontrolled, objects accelerate through the atmosphere at extreme velocities under the influence of Earth's gravity. Most controlled objects enter at hypersonic speeds due to their suborbital, orbital, or unbounded trajectories.
