Hello class! Welcome to Imperial Engineering 101. Today we are going to run through the cost and energy specifications for our most infamous weapon, the Death Star. I know that’s why you’re all here.
In my latest Because Science, I’m running through the calculations required to find out how much power the Death Star’s laser needs to destroy a planet like Alderaan. And how much would something like that cost? More than anything in human history, it turns out. Class dismissed.
