Even NASA engineers get into the Halloween spirit with their very own annual pumpkin carving contest. This year, the engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California held their contest to coincide with JPL’s birthday.

The unofficial pumpkin carving contest, now in its seventh year, featured everything from robots that fight, a pumpkin pirate ship, E.T., a moving pumpkin musician, the cookie-loving pumpkin monster and many other creative pumpkin designs.
