Ablation (a la` spacecraft reentry). Possibly Mecha's arms weren't
effected because they kept a smaller profile to the atmosphere (and
notice that it was the `shoes' that melted, not those spindly legs).

Still, does anyone have a pet theory on how an organic mixture that
is 90% water can have better heat resilience than another object
held together at the molecular level with metallic bonding?

Wow, we're all getting as bad as the Star Trek people... :)
