Carving pumpkins for Halloween can be pretty serious business. For some people, it's enough to just impress the neighbours as they come by trick-or-treating for the evening. Others even enter competitions for the best jack o' lanterns. It's pretty amazing just how many things people can make out of a simple pumpkin, some candles, and a lot of imagination.

3, 2, 1... trick or treat!

Take the scientists at NASA, for example. Every year, the space agency has a Halloween pumpkin competition, and this year's was full of the wacky, wild, and occasionally, mind-blowing. We've got a whole bunch of the entries below, courtesy of the Twitter feed of Aaron Yazzle, who is a mechanical engineer at NASA. Do you have a favourite? Let us know in the comments below!

And, of course... Happy Halloween!
