NASA Pumpkin Carving Contest

Birt 1 nóv 2013
Annual section 352 Pumpkin Carving contest at NASA/JPL. So fun and so ridiculous. Each team gets an hour to create their masterpiece.
All of the materials including the pumpkins were purchased with personal funds and not tax payer dollars :)

I make videos like this once a month all year long while supplies last:
