Carve Up Some Science With a Physics-Themed Pumpkin Creation

By Maddie Stone on at

Let’s face it once and for all this Halloween: toothy grins and pointy eyes are passé. If you really want your pumpkin lantern to stand out, we recommend spicing things up with a healthy dose of physics.

The wonderful nerds at Symmetry are here to help. This week, the particle physics magazine released five templates, each featuring an appropriately spooky version of a famous physicist. Remind your neighbours of Albert Einstein’s undying contribution to theoretical physics by lighting up your abode with his resurrected corpse. Werewolfgang Pauli can tell lonely trick-or-treaters a thing or two about exclusion, while Scary Curie is here to hammer home the horrors of excessive radiation exposure.
