Want to make an out-of-this-world Halloween pumpkin? Take a cue from the engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. It’s their job to design and build robots that can travel millions of miles to study other planets – and sometimes even land and drive around on the surface. So during Halloween, they can’t help but use their free time to bring some of that same creative thinking to designing stellar pumpkins inspired by space exploration. Explore the links below to see some of the pumpkins created by NASA engineers and do it yourself with our how-to guide.
