I tell ya, them star wars nuts are really silly, NASA is made up of Trekkies, not warsies, hence why they're building prototype warp engines, rather than playing "Knights in shining armour in space!!!"... :p

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Now they've got the funding started

Sci-Fi fans pushing for the creation of a Star Wars inspired “Death Star” have raised almost US$400,000 on a fundraising site to make it happen. It comes after Washington turned down a petition for its construction, citing astronomical costs.
Undeterred by Washington’s lack of enthusiasm, supporters of the proposed Death Star have generated an account on Kickstarter – a funding platform for creative projects, which asks for direct financial support from others in order to bring an idea to life.
The open source Death Star page is initially aiming to raise 20,000,000 pounds ($31.5 million). The money would be used to design more “detailed plans and enough chicken wire to protect reactor exhaust ports.”

Something William Shatner likes to say to over-the-top trekkies really applies to these daft warsies, "Get a life!"..... :-rofl2

Personally, I'd say build more insane asylums, cos these people seem to have lost the plot and can't tell the difference between reality (where the writers of such stories exist) and fantasy (where over-the-top nerds exist in their heads)... :)
