How much would it cost to make a Death Star?

How much exactly? $15 Septillion, I told you. But how can we conceive of that number? Well, the figures I could find for the World Economic Value were pretty general, around $14 Trillion USD. In other words, the DS would cost 1.11 TRILLION times the amount of money available in the world, that’s not even including the fact that the majority of that is digital and not physical.

How about something else? Say, how much is the Iraq war costing? You see all sorts of calculators out there, but one figure says $343 million per day, and that is a huge waste of money! But you know what? The Iraq war would have to last 124 TRILLION years, or 9,730 time the age of the UNIVERSE to equal the costs of building one measly Death Star. I mean, come now … it’s only one.

$15,602,022,489,829,821,422,840,226 and 94 cents. Tell you what, I’ll pitch in the 94 cents.
