    Dude..you physically took the hard drive itself apart and watched it spin up? If that's true you really killed it then. The second those platters are exposed to air, contaminants will touch them and destroy the data. That's why hard drives are sealed air tight.
    But, if all you did was remove the drive from the external enclosure try swapping it into a comp and see if it can be read from.
