Might it not have simply been caused by the wind? Judging by the smoke flow, there was a pretty stiff breeze, and the lander crashed in the direction it was blowing. I assume the thing is designed for the airless environment in which it is intended to operate, not under these conditions. Maybe they just chose a bad day for the test.

Submission + - JotForm domain shut down by US Secret Service->

The service is now available at alternate domains jotform.net and jotformpro.com, but changing URLs is a serious inconvenience to some. Many are paid corporate clients. Among other things, iPad and iPhone apps that embed forms will have to be re-approved by Apple.
