Petition to Build Death Star Succeeds
In a remarkable turnaround, over 14,000 signatures were added to the petition to Obama to start building a Death Star by 2016. The current total signatures is 26,887 as of 10:30 PST on December 13, 2012.
Thanks to all of you who responded to our urgent appeal on this important matter.
The original post:
With only one more day to go and another 12,000 or so signatures required, its looking very bad for the Death Star petition. It has to reach the 25,000 signature mark by Dec 14th, e.g. tomorrow, in order to be sent on to President Obama.
The petition requests that the US commit to start building the Death Star by 2016.
"By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense."
To sign the petition, go to www.whitehouse.gov/petitions, filter by "science and space policy" and look for the "Start construction of Death star by ..." petition.
