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.
