And secondly, at today's rate of steel production (1.3 billion tonnes annually), it would take 833,315 years to produce enough steel to begin work.

So...anyone got some free time and spare cash?!

Interestingly....the cost they estimated only includes steel, no electronics,plastic, etc.

Which seems like a colossal mass but we've calculated that from the iron in the earth, you could make just over 2 billion Death Stars

Looks like I get my own death star after all. And I get to say who stays on it.
