Can airport X-rays damage cassette tapes?

The invention of cassette tapes had a huge impact on society and on the music industry in general. It was a more compact way of storing and listening to music, and it also increased the locations that were available for music to be heard and accessed. With the creation of cassette tapes, people were able to listen to music in cars and other previously less accessible locations, which made music more portable.
an electronic item that plays cassette tapes. A "tape deck" is a device used to play cassette or 8-track tapes. They are fairly obsolete now, but until CDs became the rage, tapes were used regularly. There were also 4 track tape decks. Magnovox was a leader in producing tape decks. You would get them installed in your car just as you would CD players.
It turns out that cassette tape is made of a thin plastic layer, which holds a layer of ferric oxide. To put it another way, cassette tapes are using a material related to rust. Being a ferromagnetic substance, ferric oxide stores a magnetic field we expose it to. Please see a detailed explanation in the link.
Hi, Open reel tapes are equivelent to tapes like used on the older reel to reel tape recorders. They used to have open reel tapes for audio and video recorders. Many are still in use today. Open reel tapes had to be hand threaded through the tape transport whereas a cassette tape is self contained and the transport handles all the unloading and loading functions. Hope this helps, Cubby
