    Death Star Strips: American's Signs Petition For Killer Star Wars Death Space Station

    Marijuana, secession and now ‘Star Wars’: Thousands of Americans have signed yet another bizarre online White House petition, this one to “secure funding and resources” to build the ‘Death Star’ space station from the popular sci-fi film.

    “By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system suchas a DeathStar,the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense,” the petition on the White House website reads.

    The document, created on November 14 by a resident of Colorado, has already collected over 5,000 signatures. The petition needs around 20,000 more by December 14 for it to be formally reviewed by the White House staff.

    The Death Star is the planet-destroying space station built by the Galactic Empire in the wildly popular sci-fi movie saga ‘Star Wars,’ directed by George Lucas. The franchise is adored by millions of fans around the world.

    Earlier this year, students at Lehigh University in the US calculated the hypothetical cost of building a Death Star at $8.52 quadrillion – roughly 13,000 times the world’s GDP.

    The White House’s petition platform, which allows anyone to offer suggestions to the government, is relatively new and was created to provide citizens with “new way to create or join the petition encouraging government to take action on the range of issues.”

    The move has resulted in a cornucopia of bizarre petitions: Adopting the Gray Wolf to join the Bald Eagle as the national mascot; legalizing the use of magic mushrooms and mescaline; even to “shut down White House petitions, since they never get a sincere response… andare ultimately worthless.”

    The most popular petition on the website so far calls for the peaceful secession of Texas, which has collected over 110,000 signatures.

    Didn't Reagan plan something to do with star wars in the 80's? I seem to remember Star wars mentioned quite a bit when I was a kid.

    Yep. The project was to build laser and kinetic energy weapons platforms to militarize space and give America low orbit space superiority. It was aptly called the "Star Wars" project. Massive outcries from the rest of the world kinda put that to a stop.

    The star wars mentioned back in the 80's and 90's and brought up again in 2001/2007

    Was the M.defence program for outer space.. To prevent strike from say Iran or China and Russia..
