Question

How far can I drop an Ant before it dies? They seem pretty tough.

Answer

We think that an ant is so small that it's terminal velocity, the fastest it will travel in free fall through air, doesn't actually get fast enough to kill it. So in theory, you could drop an ant from any height and it would still be okay.
