This movie will self-destruct
A new twist on an old polymer
“Time’s up, Mr Phelps”
“EVERY time Jim Phelps, the leader of the ‘Mission: Impossible’ team, picked up pre-recorded details of his latest assignment, he was told: ‘This tape will self-destruct in five seconds.’ And lo-and-behold, with a puff of smoke, the tape turned to cinders.

This has been made possible by tinkering with the molecular structure of a plastic that is even older than the television series.”
