Charlie Duke:
Reentry is very critical in Apollo. The last time I looked at my computer, we were accelerating through 39,000 feet per second, which is, uh, translates to over 26,000 miles an hour.
Alan Bean:
A rifle bullet only goes 2,000 miles an hour.
Michael Collins:

Charlie Duke:
The reentry started at 400,000 feet, and by the time you got to 90,000 feet you're basically comin' straight down, free-fall.
