On November 14, a petition was created for the White House to secure funding to build a Death Star by 2016. The petition had over 25,000 signatures which means that the White House must now officially respond.

The petition for the Death Star, which I can't even believe I'm writing about, passed the 25,000 signature mark within less than a month, on December 13. Natalie M from Minneapolis was the 25,000th contributor, and she signed just 24 hours before the cut off on December 14. At the time of writing, there was 26,739 signatures.

 

The petition means serious business, with the description reading:

 

Those who sign here petition the United States government to secure funding and resources, and begin construction on a Death Star by 2016.

 

By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense.

 

The official response from the White House will most likely be a decline, but it should be good to see what happens from this petition.
