How is this supposed to cut government spending and decrease the debt?

Thank Yoda that these petitions don't carry any weight. For if they did, then we might see Pizza the hut in space as well.

They will be spending money on space anyways. Money is there they just have to allocate it accordingly.

The door is that way! -------------------------------->

Now all we need is $852,000,000,000,000,000 and 2,200,000,000,000,000,000 pounds of steel. And 830,000 years to build it.

I got what looks like an official Email from the Whitehouse regarding the petition to build the Death Star.

And its posted on the site as well. I like the detailed response. Both tongue and cheek and informative.

»petitions.whitehouse.gov/petitio···eathstar

"This Is Not the Petition Response You're Looking For

By Paul Shawcross, Chief of the Science and Space Branch at the White House Office of Management and Budget

The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn't on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:

The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We're working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.
The Administration does not support blowing up planets.
Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?

However, look carefully (here's how) and you'll notice something already floating in the sky -- that's no Moon, it's a Space Station! Yes, we already have a giant, football field-sized International Space Station in orbit around the Earth that's helping us learn how humans can live and thrive in space for long durations. The Space Station has six astronauts -- American, Russian, and Canadian -- living in it right now, conducting research, learning how to live and work in space over long periods of time, routinely welcoming visiting spacecraft and repairing onboard garbage mashers, etc. We've also got two robot science labs -- one wielding a laser -- roving around Mars, looking at whether life ever existed on the Red Planet.

Keep in mind, space is no longer just government-only. Private American companies, through NASA's Commercial Crew and Cargo Program Office (C3PO), are ferrying cargo -- and soon crew -- to space for NASA, and are pursuing human missions to the Moon this decade.

Even though the United States doesn't have anything that can do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, we've got two spacecraft leaving the Solar System and we're building a probe that will fly to the exterior layers of the Sun. We are discovering hundreds of new planets in other star systems and building a much more powerful successor to the Hubble Space Telescope that will see back to the early days of the universe.

We don't have a Death Star, but we do have floating robot assistants on the Space Station, a President who knows his way around a light saber and advanced (marshmallow) cannon, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which is supporting research on building Luke's arm, floating droids, and quadruped walkers.

We are living in the future! Enjoy it. Or better yet, help build it by pursuing a career in a science, technology, engineering or math-related field. The President has held the first-ever White House science fairs and Astronomy Night on the South Lawn because he knows these domains are critical to our country's future, and to ensuring the United States continues leading the world in doing big things.

If you do pursue a career in a science, technology, engineering or math-related field, the Force will be with us! Remember, the Death Star's power to destroy a planet, or even a whole star system, is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

Tell us what you think about this response and We the People.

So not death star.

Maybe we should aim for smaller material requirements then.

next petition should be a TARDIS.

At least aim for something the government can't copy and paste someone else's article into a response.

Sorry not possible.

by the time enough have signed it someone will have written an artical for and against it.

How about a Moon base.

How do you think that thermal vent got there. Clearly the one in the Star Wars setting was built in the SW version of china! I bet it was even painted grey with lead paint.

Naw not lead paint but solid lead (or that's what the sales rep said, bet they cheeped out and only used paint.)

Gotta block all that cosmic radiation too you know.

Look at all the permanent jobs this would create!

"Life on the Death Star
It takes more than a million people to operate the Death Star and there is room for over a billion people on board. There are always at least 1,161,293 Imperials stationed on the Death Star at any given time.

The standard complement of personnel includes:
265,675 Station crew
52,276 gunners
607,360 troops
25,984 Stormtroopers
42,782 ship support staff
167,216 pilots and support crew"

The death star can hold 800 million to a billion people too!

Really? I thought there were just three guys in funny hats who ducked when they fired the weapon.

Besides, if there really were that many people on board, why weren't the Jedi complaining about the great disturbance in the Force when the death stars were destroyed?

You mean the Jedi committing the mass murder or the one's running the mass murder machine?

Here's the size of the death star as it relates to other sci-fi stuff.
