House centipede survive a two-story fall?

Would a house centipede (sample picture) survive a 2-story fall? If so, would it probably be injured, or brush itself off pretty unscathed?

Insects will easily survive a fall of that distance. They are so light that they simply don’t develop a high enough terminal velocity to do any damage. Because of all the legs, a house centipede will have particularly high air resistance and hence a low terminal velocity.

Plus they always land on their feet. It’s pretty much unavoidable.

I’ve chucked them out about 1.5 stories many times. I assume they’re ok, having an exoskeleton and all. Either way, I’m not too concerned if those creepy bastards get hurt.

The venomous centipedes near my house are never more than about a foot long. Their extinct relatives measured up to 9 feet in length; I suppose they’d be injured.

As J. B. S. Haldane put it,

Creepy-crawlies, of course, are generally even smaller than mice. Most probably wouldn’t even notice the impact.

What a gruesome experiment to conduct. Size can’t be the only factor though, as cats can “glide.”

I objurgate the centipede,
A bug we do not really need.
At sleepy-time he beats a path
Straight to the bedroom or the bath.
You always wallop where he’s not,
Or, if he is, he makes a spot.

– Ogden Nash
