Cucurbita Maxima 2012

This year I decided to do something a little closer to my personal interests and decided to carve a likeness of Neil Armstrong who passed away this year.  Admittedly, it's not my best carving to date, but to be honest, I had a rough day at work and just wanted to get it over with.

Armstrong is someone I personally admire for having the courage and curiosity to go farther away from home than most people will ever go in their lifetime.  Only a handful of men has ever walked on the moon and that is a pretty incredible accomplishment.  Having a job here at Johnson Space Center has really opened my eyes to how much is really discovered through space exploration.

Just to prove that I really did it.
