A Death Star costs $15.6 septillion to make!

That’s 1.4 trillion times the US debt! Ryszard Gold made the calculation of the basic Death Star’s price based on the cost of current materials and space transport right here on Earth. He factored in the cost for material, air, and of course shipping and handling. 

Keep in mind that this is a very basic model of a Death Star; there is no GPS, radio, leather seating, crew quarters, drink holders, etc. These additional accessories would raise the price to $31 septillions. 

So what do you think; is it better to use that money to, I don’t know, fix the economic crisis, or will the investment be worth it.
