We began by looking at how big the Death Star is. The first one is reported to be 140km in diameter and it sure looks like it’s made of steel. But how much steel? We decided to model the Death Star as having a similar density in steel as a modern warship. After all, they’re both essentially floating weapons platforms so that seems reasonable.
Would someone please keep reading after that? I need to understand how water and space are the same “essences.” The dissonance here give me this feeling which makes the word-explain-making difficult, but here’s a few so you can see where I’m going: buoyancy, gravity, drydocking, drowning, vacuums, construction in the weightlessness of space, whatever the first way a vacuum kills you is, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
