[BUG] Angular momentum of the collider in gazing collisions

The collider does not change it's rotation after a gazing collision.

Are you sure? Are you running the latest version?

Anyone else seeing this?

Yes, just rechecked: for example in unmodified "Earth and Moon Gazing Fast" in Alpha 15.2 the moon after the collision starts rotating (although I believe it rotates in the wrong direction) but in the latest version and a version before that it stays as it was with no rotation. Earth after the collision rotates as it should. Cheked with several different colliders- the behaviour is the same.

You're totally right. Good catch. I've written up this bug for Thomas.

And I misread your original post... checking only by colliding the Moon into the Earth (where the Moon was totally destroyed) and noticing that the Earth started spinning...

Thanks for reporting this!
