A petition demanding the President Barack Obama administration build a "Death Star" like the one in Star Wars reached 25,000-plus signatures last Thursday. The administration promises it will publicly respond to petitions if they get 25, 000 signatures in a month's time which this petition did!

The petition on the White House website’s "We the People" page demands the Death Star project begin by 2016. The petition says:

“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.
