Pumpkin Carving Competition At NASA Got Really Intense

It's time to admit it to yourself. You're never going to be an astronaut.

While it's sad that most of us won't ever man a rocket into space (unless we're one of the select few that get to go die on Mars), we can still take solace in these incredible pumpkins that were carved out by members of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

The annual pumpkin carving competition features some classy works of engineered art that belong in the Louvre and totally make your carved-up pumpkin look more like a barfed-up "chumpkin."

Don't Google "chumpkin." It's not a word and it never will be.

Take this Demogorgon pumpkin from "Stranger Things" that looks like it's straight out of the Upside Down.



Who knew a pumpkin was a perfect place to store things? Why do I even own a dresser?


This UFO even has a tractor beam. RIP that cow, though.

Happy 80th, JPL. Although I hope these employees know that this pumpkin isn't some sort of birthday cake.

Ah, there's truly nothin' like roastin' a pig over a pumpkin grill. (No animals were harmed in the writing of this article... yet.)

This pumpkin carving is also pretty much the plot of "Interstellar."

Oh man, this is the perfect gift to bring to a swingers party. And now, all I have to do is get invited to a swingers party. *Looks at phone waiting for a text that will never come.*

You laugh, but this pumpkin meteor is polling at 10 percent.

Wow, NASA's Juno spacecraft looks so small in person.

Luke, this pumpkin is your father.

Here's your newest nightmare fuel. Say goodbye to sleep and hello to Pumpkin With A Bandsaw Blade Through Its Head!

Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde don't stand a chance again Mrs. Pac-Man... or should I say, "Mrs. Pump-Can?"
