Cartoon - Please Avoid Looking at this Cartoon

Nothing to see here folks! Or, I was thinking about Star Wars, and the Death Star. Hmmm. The Death Star is the size of a small moon. It shoots this beam and blows up the planet Alderaan, poof! You gotta figure the planet is way bigger than the Death Star -- our Moon, for instance, has approximately 1/4 Earth's diameter, 1/50 Earth's volume, and 1/80 Earth's mass. So the Death Star related to Alderaan can't be more than 2 percent of the planets mass. So that is a pretty huge amount of energy for the Death Star to have, however you want to explain it, to be able to vaporize a planet with almost 100% more mass than the Death Star. And the Death Star totally annihilates Alderaan from very far away, because the Death Star does not get pelted with any debris, so the power source in the Death Star that produces this beam is all the greater in intensity.  That is a lot of energy to be controlling, I wonder how they do it? I bet there were quite a few accidents before they got the vaporizing of planets just right. Where did they test it? If the Empire is so technologically capable, and the Death Star is so fabulously expensive and complex, why wouldn't they use more conventional means to dominate the Empire? It is a movie, I know. But you gotta wonder. Thus I have lost my mind. CM Evans Cartoons
