There should be a new height class invented for the Death Star since I think megatall is just not enough to describe its size

On September 2011 the cost of the Death Star is estimated at 15,602,022,489 829,821,422,840 226.94 U.S. dollars, but it will take 833,315 years to get the necessary amount of steel

And that is assuming that this amount of steel will ever be available here.

Why do you think the Death Star is built of steel? There are probably better materials available in the future.

They definitely won't use traditional steel in the far future. Technology is moving ahead and today's technology might be ancient past in a century or two

I'm working on a Science fiction book idea about a alien race called the Gull Coo building a giant star ship in the shape of a super oil tanker that is eight miles long and a mile by a mile across.

How they build giant alien ship is they build it in a spot in their solar system where there tons of giant iron rich giant astorids and they build a ship base around one of the larger ones. During a time frame of ten years tens of thousands of them along with at least 400 to 500 smaller intellgent robotic space ships called Ring Necks that help them build by collecting metal and other things for it. Also half of the metal used in the ship comes from smaller older star ships that where kitbased into the new larger ship in that unlike human metal which rusts the alien metal doesn't so it could be hunderds of years old and could be reused over and over again in several generations of space ships.

we can use planet mercury (with iron core) to build Death Star

In February 2012, students from Lehigh University of Pennsylvania published a blog post that priced the Death Star based on the cost of steel to produce it. The students believed that in today's economy, it would cost $852,000,000,000,000,000 assuming that the diameter of the Death Star was 140 kilometres but that it would take 833,315 years to produce enough steel to begin work.

Death Star Costs $15.6 Septillion, 1.4 Trillion Times the US Debt

If you had $15.6 septillion and 94 cents in your account, would you save the world from the economic crisis or build a Death Star, destroy the world, and move on to invade the galaxy?

A guy called Ryszard Gold-who probably is an alien villain from the Outer Rim planets and got a 49-point score in our Geek Social Aptitude Test-made the calculation of the most basic Death Star's price with current materials and space transport costs here on Earth. Here's a quick summary:

• First, assume that 1/10 of the 17.16 quadrillion cubic meters of the Death Star is something other than empty space and 6/10 of the total volume is pressurized space.
• That will require 1.71 quadrillion cubic meters of steel, about 134 quadrillion tonnes. That's $12.95 quintillion in current 2008 prices, and that's without counting strange alloys and elements.
• Shipping that to space will cost $95 million per tonne: So add $12.79 septillion in transport.
• Now you need to add air, which will require 8.23 quintillion cubic meters of Nitrogen, and 1.65 quintillion cubic meters of oxygen, for a total delivery cost of $2.81 septillions and $212.46 quintillion.

The total: $15,602,022,489,829,821,422,840,226.94.

Yes, that's a whooping 1.4 trillion times the current US Debt. Or a sightly more meaningful number: 124 trillion years of war in Iraq.

That will only get you the very basic model of Death Star, no options, no GPS, no radio, no leather heated seats, no mega-laser to obliterate planets, no turbolaser towers, no computer systems, no miscellaneous life support systems, no crew quarters, no turbo-elevators, no energy generators, no showers, no air conditioning, no Darth Vader's jacuzzi, no Emperor's home theater system, and no bloody canteen. And don't get me started on the cost of all the lunch trays and the constant supply of penne all'arrabbiata and peas needed for all the Death Star personell*. That will probably double the final bill, coupled with the construction costs, for a total of more than $31 septillions.

Now let's see how many people will want to be frozen to survive and be able to see the construction.

pretty funny that the transport cost is 12.79 septillion, or 82% of the cost. prlll.

82%? Perhaps building it here then spend money trying to figure out how to get it in orbit.
