  2. According to Brazilian astronaut Marcos Pontes, who was on a Soyuz mission, when you reenter the earth’s orbit, it is like driving your car down the interstate and watching it disintegrate around you. The Soyuz had three main components: the habitation section, the reentry capsule, and the service module. While you sit in the reentry capsule, the habitation section and service module burn up on reentry.
