To make it more interesting I think people must backup their claims with evidences.
This I set out to do, but so far no go. I thought that a feather couldn't kill anyone, but that turned out to be wrong. Then I tried a marshmallow. Unfortunately, it turns out that it can. A leaf, a sticky-note, a flower. I'm afraid I have to stop for the time being until I can tidy up here and then it's back to work.

The point seems clear: Assume everything is dangerous until long-term data is available showing otherwise.

Landing is a bona fide part of skydiving, as it is part of training. And the impact with the planet can kill when deployment fails.

Nothing traveling at the speed of light can die, it can only transform.
