The Death Star doesnt shoot nukes
"The superlaser was composed of several exotic matter beams accelerated and amplified by gigantic focusing magnetic lenses and coils, producing a single powerful beam. Unlike turbolasers, it pulled energy from a massive hypermatter core, converting the energy present in hyperspace into highly unstable particles that were tremendously destructive in normal space. The energy delivered into a target was so great that it could cause the target's atoms to split into matter-antimatter pairs and annihilate themselves, creating hundreds of miniature singularities while generating a powerful surge capable of rupturing the barrier between normal space and hyperspace"
Its basically a particle beam that casues matter to split into matter and anti matter which then detonate. I didn't actually know this...the concept behind this weapon is really scary, in theory it should be able to destroy anything it shoots. Absolutely anything as long as its made up of matter.
