Actually this did not happen in a galaxy far, far away. It’s happening in our planet!
The bid to build a Death Star around Earth has 1,064 backers so far. £ 191,673.00 have been pledged in one of the most ambitious warsie projects ever conceived. The initial goal is to raise £ 20’000,000.00 which would be used to develop detailed plans of construction.
To keep costs lower the entire project will use open source hardware and software.
Official records reveal the original Death Star was a mobile battle station used by the Galactic Empire.
The first Death Star was an immense space station that carried a weapon capable of destroying entire planets. The Death Star was to be an instrument of terror, meant to force rebel worlds into surrender under the threat of destruction.
The project has been launched using the Kickstarter funding platform for creative projects, based in New York City. Should you feel the need to be part of this endeavour and join other Star Wars fans (or Death Star’s enthusiasts), click here and may the Force be with you.
