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. http://www.shockandahh.com/2012/02/e...ar-almost.html
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.
