Caltech smashes pumpkins in annual tradition

PASADENA, Calif. Pumpkin smashing has become an annual tradition at /*Caltech*/.

According to school tradition, there was once a claim that dropping a pumpkin frozen in liquid nitrogen from a sufficient height would cause pieces of the pumpkin to glow as they shattered.

Students drop the pumpkins every year off Millikan Library and look for the glow.
