That jack-o'-lantern you worked on all weekend doesn't look like much compared to the feats of engineering these NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory engineers put into their annual pumpkin carving contest.

This year's entrants brought it and there's video and photos to prove it.

Devoted NASA JPL mechanical engineer Aaron Yazzie was diligent in sharing inventive takes on the traditional Halloween decoration, much to our viewing pleasure.
