i really don't know if anyone tried shooting the liquid in a glowstick out of a cannon before?
i remember reading about a post dealing with pouring the liquid out on wadding or something like that,
but has anyone thought about putting the liquid in a capsule and shooting it?
i've made one but i'm really curious if anyone else has made such a thing?

this is the capsule im talking about 2 caps in the end and 1 layer of electric or duck tape on the side to give it the extra tight fit

the camera couldn't capture the huge mess that this capsule left, you can only see the big splats

whats left, it did what it was made for, and its reusable, if you can find it (which you will unless you shot it at a distance) all you have to do is remove the broken cap and add a new one

instead of putting it in a capsule wouldn't it make more sense to shoot the glowstick itself?
