No, I don't think they're larger. It's just a more expensive process to produce them because they don't use moving parts. I think it's practical to have the storage but the price would be prohibitive (or at least was before they discontinued it).
For certain some hard drives crashing is physical—that's when the data becomes unrecoverable from what I can tell. Sometimes data just becomes corrupted for some reason and then it's a software problem. But one of my comp sci profs told me about how with older hard drives, you could open up a crashed hard drive and see that the disc had just disintegrated into dust because it was spinning so fast when it crashed into the plate below it. Pretty interesting!
