Sorry if this has been answered previously.

Can a probe attempt/test re-entry, or does it burn up?

Only capsules face re-entry, all other components are safe.

So no, probes cannot test re-entry.

A footnote in the rules on page 26 states:

Any spacecraft may attempt any maneuver. It does not matter what components the spacecraft is made of.

...so I believe that a probe can face re-entry - it just doesn't have to.

Any spaceship may face the RE-ENTRY hazard. But it will be an automatic success unless it contains at least one capsule.

Quote:
For each working capsule with heat shields, draw an outcome from your Re-entry advancement to see what happens.
