The magnets are so strong that when we placed a 10mm magnet near the 50mm one, they rocketed together and the impact caused the 10mm magnet to explode.
No slowmo video :(.

Why are they struggling to destroy the HD.
Maybe try guns, fire, heights, explosions.

So they destroyed a drive. Not really a surprise with something strong enough but not the actual data. Why? Because this isn't possible if you understand the actual physics involved.
