This is the ultimate pork, it's beyond PORK! Sounds like a good idea, if it weren't for the scale. It is a galactically crazy idea.

How Much Would It Cost to Build the Death Star from Star Wars?

. . . .Even if you can imagine quite a bit, Centives, the economics blog of students of Lehigh University, says it would cost “$852,000,000,000,000,000. Or roughly 13,000 times the world’s GDP” to build the Death Star…and that’s just the cost of steel production.

And it would take an estimated 800,000 years.
