Breaking CDs

 A YouTube channel I enjoy to watch is that of The Slow Mo Guys. For those of you who aren't familiar with them, they film many different things- paint on speakers playing music, a bullet being shot through a pool of water, etc.- with high speed cameras that capture millions of frames per second. In one video, they spin a CD at 23,000 rpm (the critical spin rate of a CD)  at which it begins to shatter due to the extreme forces it feels at this high rpm. They catch all of this in slow motion making it an interesting (and physicsy) watch! I've included it below. Enjoy!
