The Cost Of Building A Death Star

Back of an envelope estimated calculations are a skill every scientist should cultivate. Sanity checking your complex calculations is essential!

Of course you could always swap your envelope for your blog,like geekologie have done, who have estimated how much it would cost to build the Death Star.

Okay, so if we can cut out NASA we can basically save ourselves $13 septillion, dropping the total cost of a Death Star to a paltry $2 septillion. Now I think that's manageable folks

Nice. I woulnd't want to be the one that had to present the numbers to Vader, however.

No my Lord, we probably don't need that many cupholders.
