I've watched The Truth About Gravity With Professor Jim Al-Khalili | Gravity And Me | Spark where astronaut Chris Hadfield says at 3:55:
To come back to Earth is violent
Then after several seconds of music and video of descent
it can be five times the force of gravity...for quite a long time
I got immediately puzzled as in free fall objects are not subjected to "gravity force": the rest of the video itself explains that.
Just to be sure I've web-searched and found e.g. Return to Earth: An Astronaut's View of Coming Home but more gravity is mentioned when talking about ascent to space.
I've tried to read wiki Gravity turn where some mechanics of descent are explained but have not found about high acceleration on descent.
I consider Jim Al-Khalili a respectable scientist. Looks to me the issue is a video editor mistake overlooked by reviewers. What other explanation can there be?
