Does the teeny tiny cannon actually work? This one’s actually pretty simple. Yes. Yes it does.
Much like a bullet or a larger cannon (or exactly like both of those) this very small canon fires a pellet thanks to an explosion of a small amount of gunpowder that forces its way out of the chamber, launching the projectile at speeds up to 1,200 mph.
Who knew that a canon that looked like it had one of those old metal pencil sharpeners from school for a base could be so potential deadly?
