## What would it take to build the Death Star?

In short, don't count on it happening anytime soon: The actual size of the Death Star, according to their estimations, is close to 120 to 160 kilometers in diameter, and would cost the equivalent of 18 quadrillion dollars to build.

## How much money would it cost to build the Death Star?

At \$2.2 billion in 1945 dollars for the WW2 super project, Feinstein estimates the 20-year cost to complete the Death Star at more than \$192 quintillion (that's 18 zeros). While \$192,000,000,000,000,000,000 looks like a lot, keep in mind The Evil Empire spanned hundreds of solar systems.

But since it's going to take around 30 million years to complete the whole project, we've got time to save up.

## Is the Death Star bigger than Earth?
