Say that a heavy (150ish kg) android was involved in some kind of incident in orbit and came crashing back down to earth (traveling at orbital-ish speeds upon re-entry).
Would they be going fast enough to "arrive" with a bang or would atmospheric drag have slowed them to more of an anticlimactic soft thud? (for the sake of argument, assume they don't burn up on the way down)
Playing around with this crater size calculator, sizeable (i.e. violent) craters only occur with objects traveling at several km/s at impact as opposed to at re-entry.
The idea is that the impact is violent enough to be heard as a thunderous boom in several nearby towns, but sadly my rudimentary google-math suggests otherwise.
