The Death Star does seem to be a physical improbability when you think about it, and the amount of time, effort and Republic credits required to construct something this massive with its own gravitational field boggles the mind. Impossible would be the word to use here, considering the circumstances surrounding the earth and its politics at the moment, but this has not stopped over 25,000 folks living in the US to figure out that the White House has that kind of money to burn – in constructing a Death Star by the time 2016 rolls around. The 25,000 plus people have signed a petition to ask whoever is in the White House to achieve this monumental task, touting that such a project would spur job growth in America’s stalled economy.
The petition mentioned, “By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense.”
We await with bated breath as to the White House’s official response, and even if they built one, it would be highly advisable not to have any exhaust ports open that lead to the main reactor, and neither should the Death Star have trenches or exhaust vents large enough for tiny spaceships to fly through and blow the whole thing to bits and pieces due to a major design flaw as that.
