A British energy company has done a calculation on the operating costs of the fictitious Star Wars ‘Death Star’ which makes a return apperance in the upcoming ‘Rogue One’ film on December 16th. The conclusion found that it would costs 7.7 Octillion dollars per day to operate. Which by the way is 100 trillion times the amount of wealth that exists on planet earth!
How did they arrive at such an astronomical number? factor in feeding and housing 2 million employee’s, 2 billion light bulbs, recharging and using a planet destroying laster.. the list goes on but you can see how costs can ad up.. and we thought we had high energy costs here in Ontario!
