Punkin' Chunkin' missiles in Bridgeville, Delaware. Every November since 1986, a contest has been held to test mechanical ways to throw a pumpkin. Large crowds watch 72 engineering teams in different categories shoot 8- to 10-lb. pumpkins considerable distances. The pumpkins are specially cultivated to be hard so that they won't fall apart at once but can go the full distance.

The Physics of "Punkin Chunkin" - "Punkin Chunkin" is the United State's annual contest to see whose homemade machine can hurl a pumpkin the farthest (without explosives!). Every November, thousands of amateur engineers converge on a farm in Delaware to put their contraptions to the test. The machines at the Punkin Chunkin festival rely on physics to get the pumpkin airborne & Hank is here to give you all the fascinating details of how it works. Happy Thanksgiving!
