When it comes to making Halloween pumpkins, NASA's carving competition is the gold standard

These people know their way around a jack-o-lantern.

IF YOU CARVED a pumpkin for Halloween, you might want to look away now.

Nobody wants to be told how sub-standard they are.

NASA engineers have just made your efforts look like childsplay. They hold the contest every year, but this one was particularly competitive as it was celebrating the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory 80th birthday.

Their entries are pretty special to put it lightly

Where even IS the pumpkin?

The amazing entries were shared on Twitter by mechanical engineer Aaron Yazzie and have all gotten thousands of likes since they were shared over the weekend.

Kudos NASA engineers.
