Pumpkin Drop 2009

The Pumpkin drop is an even held every year by BU’s Physics department. The experiment collides pumpkins of varying size and content with the earth. Last year, they were looking for the Higgs Boson, this year the target was the magnetic monopole. This year included a costume contest, and of course the chairmen Claudio Rebbi in his famous Friday best.

Some pictures of this event are available here.
