the article from 10 years ago goes into more details, and even very different details. She's not giving the whole picture.

very irreverent, and very true.

This is the first guy I've found explaining science who's as adorable as all the delightful young women explaining science. He's helped me figure out what the difference is: the women physically express their enthusiasm for the intellectual concepts they are explaining. The men and women are equally good at explaining, but the women are just more fun to watch. And then there's this guy, demonstrating it's not just their sex appeal.

If you decide to watch this you'll find him referring over and over to the Feynman Lectures on Physics, which is revered by physics majors but probably unknown outside that group.

{{ I saw an artists interpretation of how the robot they landed on the moon would look when it gets there ( I saw this before it did)-

Quantum Physics - Page 38 132698562-landed-jpg

and I said to Nagual, "why would you make it that shape? Surely it'll just fall over?"

And then it landed, and fell over.
When it's so obvious to a layman from a drawing of it that's a risk with the design, how come the world's top space engineers have never heard the phrase 'top heavy' before? }}

The legs are pretty wide.  It looks to me like the only reason it fell over is either one leg was on a pretty big boulder (or it's on a steep slope), or they somehow came down at an angle.

To my eye if the center of mass is 1/3 down from the top, this thing would have to tip at more than a 30 degree angle before falling over. As far as I know there's no gusts or moon bears to knock it over, so it comes down to landing site or pilot error. Most likely a boulder. Neal Armstrong gave a sudden last burst of reserve fuel to avoid landing on a boulder field.
