Spinning a Record to Pieces at 12,500fps - The Slow Mo Guys

  • Published on Jun 2, 2018
  • Gav and Dan take 1 piece of vinyl and spin it so fast it becomes about 50,000 pieces of vinyl. The results are obviously captured by a very high speed camera.
    Thanks to Vision Research for lending the Phantom v2640.

    The record broke from the center out.
    Not a true catastrophic failure. It's like trying to push a baseball through a nickel sized hole in a glass window.

    Around 12:41 when the image was rotating to keep the record still, it reminded me of the early pictures of Saturn's rings from the Voyager spacecraft where they saw the features of them for the first time usclip.net/video/X5wP5FSwTPo/video.html?t=1081 I remember one version where they kept the rings still in the same manner as your rotating record.
