Star Wars Death Star FAQs
The Death Star in Star Wars is about 120 kilometers (75 miles) in diameter, making it a massive space station capable of destroying entire planets.
The Death Star was built by the Galactic Empire with the help of many engineers, designers, and construction crews. The lead designer of the Death Star was an Imperial officer named Bevel Lemelisk.
The Death Star in Star Wars is a moon-sized space station equipped with a powerful laser weapon capable of destroying entire planets. It is powered by a hypermatter reactor, which provides the energy needed to operate the station’s systems and weapons. The station also has a number of defensive systems, including tractor beams, shields, and TIE fighters, to protect it from attack.
In the original Star Wars movie, now known as Episode IV: A New Hope, the Death Star was destroyed by a team of Rebel Alliance pilots who were able to fly their X-wing starfighters through a narrow trench on the surface of the Death Star and fire proton torpedoes into a small exhaust port, which caused a chain reaction that destroyed the station.
