The internet’s chock full of wonderful ways to carve a Halloween pumpkin every year, but few can hold a glowing candle to what the scientists, engineers, and researchers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab come up with. Every year the lab holds a pumpkin-carving competition and the results, and the carving techniques, are exactly what you’d expect from the geniuses who landed the rovers on Mars.
Haunted houses have gone over the top in the quest for guts, gristle and gore. But the Alvarado Caverns and Mystery Theatre in Los Angeles offers a clever, DIY twist on scare tactics. Its fascinating — yet still freaky — lo-fi haunting techniques are cribbed from one of the country’s original spooky addresses: Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion.

Because unfortunately movie versions of medical textbooks are all too rare, if you’re cramming for an upcoming exam on the human skeletal system and the last thing you want to do is spend the night reading, this wonderful $US32 tome can be turned into an almost six-foot tall paper skeleton. Nothing beats hands-on experience as a learning tool, right?
