At first I read that as a capsule full of Kerbals will burn up in the atmosphere and then I giggled.

Uh oh. If that's a Toyota Hilux, it won't burn up in atmosphere. Those things are literally indestructible.

Because to get the capsule to break out of Earth's gravity would take way too much fuel. Incineration is way cheaper.
