In this slowest episode of The Slow Mo Guys ever, Gav and Dan spin a CD at 23,000 revolutions per minute (rpm), causing it to shatter rather spectacularly. The results were filmed with a Phantom V2511 at 28,500 frames per second, 61,960 fps, and 170,600 fps… that last one is 6,824 times slower than real time.

Watch more spinning videos and more slow motion videos, including more Slow Mo Guys: Bouncing oobleck, how a slinky falls, huge puddle splash, and a gravity-defying cat.
