Carve out your favorites from NASA's annual Halloween pumpkin contest

Your sad little jack 'o lantern will cower in shame after seeing these incredible pumpkin creations from last week's annual pumpkin carving contest at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena, California.  Every year a gang of astro scientists and mechancial engineers gather together to partake in the seasonal competition judged by the public, with some of the most amazing whirling, blinking, spinning squash on display in the universe.  Entrants are given only one hour to make their masterpieces so keep in mind the astonishing speed these Halloween treats were conceived by.  The Jet Propulsion Lab was officially founded on October 31, 1936 so this yearly pumpkin art parade is part of their big October birthday salute. 

Inspect this nerdy patch of awesome, hi-tech, NASA-carved pumpkins and tell us which one takes the grand prize for you!  For me it's the Donald and Hillary diorama and Giant Meteor 2016 all the way!
