Jet Propulsion Laboratory engineers held their sixth annual pumpkin carving contest, using light and mechanical twists to up their Halloween game
Here’s a friendly reminder never to challenge an engineer to a pumpkin carving contest. The scientists at Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) took things to the next level in its sixth annual pumpkin carving contest on Thursday. Rather than crafting classic, grinning jack-o’-lanterns the engineers added some mechanical twists to their elaborate creations. A real passion for pumpkins: competitive growers and carvers live for their craft! There was a pumpkin turned spinning UFO, complete with a cow being pulled up by a beam of light. One team created a Pac-Man pumpkin, with a mouth that opened and closed. There was even a riff on the 2016 presidential election. One pumpkin celebrated JPL’s 80th birthday, which is on 31 October.
