You thought your jack-o'-lantern was cool. Now look at these NASA engineers' pumpkins.



If you're feeling pretty good about the pumpkin you just carved, well, maybe don't continue reading. 

But, if you know your jack-o'-lantern is pretty average, NASA's pumpkin carving contest will likely make you feel super basic. 

Engineers as NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory competed in their annual pumpkin carving contest this Halloween and man did they take jack-o'-lanterns to the next level. 

For instance, this one, carved to look like a carousel. 

And this really cool one that features samples from Mars. No big deal. 

This "Martian sample return mission" is also very impressive. 

There was even a birthday pumpkin because the lab was founded on Halloween in 1936. 

And last, but not least, there was a pumpkin dedicated to the presidential election.
