I was just about to say that. If it were 120km in length, width and height, it would be a box.

If there were three planned, but only two destroyed... what became of the third one?
#39 to #7 - alexanderh ONLINE (04/05/2014) [-]
In the expanded universe, it was partially built, but destroyed before it was completed. As far as I remember, and fourth one was built, but on a much smaller scale. It had none of the weaknesses of the predecessors, but a small ship rammed it, destroying it. It was either that, or the ship fired one of its supernova missiles (seriously, you shoot a star with it, and the star goes supernova). The ship could withstand ramming pretty much anything, and it was used as a fairly effective weapon against capital ships.

I think you're confusing the Tarkin(mainly the giant laser they had on deathstars) and the,uh,Suncrusher I think it was called.
#81 to #39 - onewhoobserves (04/05/2014) [-]
You are thinking of the Sun Crusher and the Prototype Death Star. The supernova torpedoes did do some damage to the Death Star but not enough to be really effective. Ultimately the pilot of the Sun Crusher suckered the Death Star too close to a black hole and both were unable to escape it's gravitational pull. The pilot of the Sun Crusher survived by breaking his legs and cramming himself into a message capsule.

Wth, this thing is lame. Way to powerful for the star wars universe. It's like a kid being like "nu-uh I have level two hundred infinity armour" in some knight game or something. LAME
#153 to #134 - anon (04/06/2014) [-]
The Suncrusher had no real means of ship to ship defense besides a single laser cannon, it was built to be almost indestructible to that it could detonate a star and survive the supernova.

"800.000 years to produce"

Well, better get to work then

If you enlarge it the background switches to white and it's a lot easier to read
#29 - spearpwi (04/04/2014) [-]
It's much easier to read if you enlarge. Great work as always. I've never commented up until now but I've enjoyed every one of your Star Wars posts so well done.

"The Death star was 120KM wide"

That's massive or a manufactured object, but in what way is that moon sized? Orbiting asteroid maybe.

US National Debt : 17.5 trillion
Death Star Estimated cost : 852 000 trillion
US Debt to Death Star Cost ratio : 48685.7

Population of United States as of April 2014 : ca 318 million

48685.7 x 318 million = ca 15.5 trillion.
It would in other words take the debt of 15.5 trillion Americans to fund the Death Star.

Taking static numbers of the American demographic growth rate and using them in differential equation, it would take the US approximately one thousand one hundred and thirteen years (1 113) to reach a population with which the debt of would be sufficient to fund a Death Star (based on the current debt per person).

But wait, there's more!

US debt fraction of Death Star cost = 1/48686
Estimated volume of the Death Star (based on a 70 km radius) : ca 1.44 million cubic kilometers

1/48686 * (1.44 * 10^6) = 29.5 cubic kilometers. The sum of the US debt could fund a portion of the Death Star roughly the size of Lake Sakakawea in North Dakota,
a relatively small lake.

TL;DR
Based on current US debt per citizen, we would 15.5 trillion people to fund the Death Star.
It would take the US 1 113 years to reach that many citizens without stagnation.
The current US debt would be enough to pay for a portion of the Death Star the size of Lake Sakakawea in ND.


God I'm bored.
