The internet’s chock full of wonderful ways to carve a Halloween pumpkin every year, but few can hold a glowing candle to what the scientists, engineers, and researchers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab come up with. Every year the lab holds a pumpkin carving competition and the results, and the carving techniques, are exactly what you’d expect from the geniuses who landed the rovers on Mars.
Entries included everything from complete solar systems, to space battles, to aquariums filled with living fish. And the real winners were the geniuses who found a way to get out of an afternoon of work.
