Death Star Kickstarter Campaign Creators Ask for $850 Quintillion for Construction

Death Star

It seems that the backers of the Death Star petition have no intention of giving up on their wishes. After receiving a comedic response titled “This Isn’t the Petition Response You’re Looking For“, the Death Star enthusiasts took their efforts to Kickstarter. With an initial funding goal of £20,000,000 ($30,000,000), more detailed plans can be made. As you can see in the picture below, their current plans are far from sufficient.

Before I let you get too wrapped up in all of this, I want to assure you that this is a joke and the campaign coincidentally ends of April 1st (April Fool’s Day). However, the Kickstarter page notes that the final Death Star would require £543,000,000,000,000,00 ($850,000,000,000,000,000) in funding.

The main reason behind the White House turning down the Death Star is the cost and obviously we have little need for destroying our neighboring planets. At $850 Quintillion, this project would increase the deficit astronomically. But, Paul Shawcross was sure to make his response nice and funny for the Star Wars fans.
