Over-rotating CDs

Ages ago I mentioned here the Mythbusters episode where they destroyed a CD by spinning it way too fast (23,000 RPM). Since 2005 video equipment has gotten a great deal better. The Slow Mo Guys have a video out with them shattering CDs by spinning them too fast, and filming at up to 170,000 frames per second!
