Harddisk Head Crash @ 15K RPM

Part of my "Hard Disk Drive Hacks" project at Hack42.

 

Pictured are two harddisk platters, the left one taken from a working disk drive. The right one has suffered a head crash, probably at full speed (15.000 RPM), judging from the damage. The magnetic material has been scraped clean off the platter, resulting in a see-through effect of the glass disc.
