A n online petition urging the Pentagon to build a real Death Star, the ultimate galactic weapon featured in the “Star Wars” movies, had no serious hope of success. We’re nevertheless grateful the White House nixed the idea. Probably had something to do with the estimated $850 quadrillion price tag.
