Watch a GoPro Camera Go Through Dangerous Radiation


What effect do lethal levels of radiation have on film?

One PhD student with some free time decided to find out by enclosing a GoPro in a 1/4″ lead box and sending it through an electron beam irradiator, according to Digg.

Visible in the clip are calcite samples that start to glow as they pass through the beam, but the most interesting part of the video isn’t what the camera sees, but what happens to the actual camera itself — look for a crackling burst of fuzzy, blue-colored scrambled footage around the 1-minute mark.
