Yeah, that makes sense, so the ant would still not die when it is dropped from the airplane? Or will the pressure applied to the ant have killed it before reaching the airplane? But I understand that the terminal velocity of an ant is relatively small compared to us, as they have a smaller surface area etc. But surely if must do SOME harm to an ant? Because, if we fall with the speed of terminal velocity, we would most definitely die. Even if the speed of terminal velocity of an ant is small, wouldn't it affect its small body?
