Memory Cards Pass the Nuclear Test

4Gb SanDisk Extreme III SDHC Class 6 CardEver wondered whether or not a memory card could survive a nuclear radiation test? No? Well, now you can find out anyway, thanks to some rather risky “hands-on” testing from e-fotografija.

“Memory card temperature and radiation test in Nuclear Power Plant Krsko labs. Both cards kept data after relatively high doses. A conclusion can be drawn – there’s no need to worry about our pictures when we pass through airport scanning devices. Also we know that we can make pictures in a medical X-ray facility. With film, this was always risky. Worrying about whether our pictures can survive an X-ray scan is a thing of the past. While the new X-ray scanners have a “film safe” label, digital media is resilient even to those without the label.”
