The fate of around a dozen pumpkins on Halloween was to be smashed outside the Howey Physics Building in the late afternoon hours.
Two pumpkins fall from atop the Howey Physics Building.
The Society of Physics Students and Society of Women in Physics hosted their annual Pumpkin Smash Fundraiser on Wednesday, Oct. 31. Each pumpkin was sponsored for $100, primarily by physics faculty members, for the chance to be carved and then thrown from the Georgia Tech Observatory atop the Howey Physics Building.
Ed Greco, academic professional, had the honor of throwing the pumpkins from the roof. Some were dipped in liquid nitrogen before falling to the pavement.
