Caption

Atmospheric re-entry. Artwork showing a space capsule (centre) re-entering the Earth's atmosphere. Objects in Earth orbit are moving at speeds of several kilometres per second. When they decelerate and re-enter the atmosphere, the high speeds of impact cause a shockwave to form, and lead to large amounts of heat and light being generated.
