Pretty sure if you fall from orbit you'd burn up on reentry before anything interesting happened.
I guess? He didn't even mention it to hand-wave it away. He does mention other mundane problems like cold and oxygen toxicity.
I not a scientist, but doesn't our oxygen-rich atmosphere act as an accellerant? Density of the gasses that you're passing through would vary the friction, and more oxygen would fuel the flames of friction-based heat.
I'd argue with this guy, but I don't know enough about Saturn to dispute him.
that would have been a cool thing to include and discuss.
For what it's worth, I think Cassini burned up well above the first cloud deck. It's cool to think about what extreme pressures can do to elements, but yeah I don't typically like these "what would happen to you in a black hole?" deals that astrophysics people seem to be into when they are talking to us everyday proles.

He had me at 2 million atm of pressure.
