This is a variation on the "can an ant survive a fall from the empire state building" question. Ignoring the fact the ant/human would not survive in a vacuum and assuming that at a certain minimum height (30,40,50 ft) a human woud die from a fall, would an ant survive falling from the same height? This question came up after a round of golf and few can of beers. Words like terminal velocity were tossed around by some but we need an authoratative answer from an expert. Thanks in advance
