Watching the annual NASA Jet Propulsion Lab pumpkin-carving contest is a great way to feel insecure in your own skills. 

The scientists pulled out all the stops and created science-inspired masterpieces out of the seasonal gourd. The video above shows the seventh annual contest in action. Other notable entries were posted on social media. 

There was a Mars Curiosity rover pumpkin, a War of the Worlds fighting machine, and a take on the InSight spacecraft.

Outside the lab in Pasadena, California, other NASA offices got in on the space-themed pumpkin carving.

NASA even shared tips on how to decorate your pumpkin like a bonafide engineer.
