A Little Science Experiment

So I just found out something that I am going to have to try soon. Apparently if you pull duct tape apart quickly in the dark, it turns blue.

This is an example of triboluminescence, which is a glow given off when certain materials are under mechanical stress or friction.

I haven’t tried this yet, but I am going to try to capture it on video.
