 Star Wars: Databank | Death Star II
Within three years of the Death Star's demise, the Galactic Empire again proved its evil nature with the construction of a second Death Star in a remote region of space.
To ensure that the Death Star would destroy the lured Alliance fleet, Palpatine entrusted the supervision of its final phase of construction to his Sith apprentice, Lord Darth Vader.
Vader motivated the Death Star's commander, Moff Jerjerrod, to see that the battle station was operational when the Emperor arrived for his inspection tour.

 Death Star
The Death Star's defences were designed to repel a capital ship attack, as starfighters were considered "insignificant" by Imperial military strategists at the time.
Fully half of the Death Star's interior was occupied by the hypermatter reactor core, the sublight and hyperdrive systems and the superlaser housing.
The majority of the "habitable" areas in the Death Star were either on the surface or within two to four kilometres from the surface.

 Star Wars Jokes - DEATH STAR = DEATH TRAP
For all the yipping Admiral Motti does about his station being the "ultimate power in the universe," certain aspects of the Death Star's construction leave a lot to be desired.
Indeed, on several occasions the Death Star's sinister engineers seemingly made it one of their design specifications to make things as dangerous as possible.
It's possible that only one gravity generator services the entire Death Star, and that that generator can't be fine-tuned to provide gravity to only certain areas.

 SPACE.com -- Death-Star Beam Stretches Bubble Into Space
This is the first time astronomers have ever seen a high energy beam blasted from an exploded star affecting the shape of its gaseous stellar death shroud, called a supernova remnant.
Material from one star is spilling onto a compact, massive companion -- either a fl hole or a neutron star.
This could be caused by the dense clumps, tunnels, walls and cavities in the thin gas between the stars.

 U.S.S. Enterprise vs. The Death Star @ WWWF Grudge Match
The Death Star is so huge, that the Enterprise could blast at it all day and still not do anything significant to it.
But what you're really forgetting is that the Death Star, as shown in Episode IV, has a weak spot: All the Enterprise has to do is get close enough to fire a photon torpedo down that hole the size of a whomp-rat and the Death Star goes kablooie.
The death Star was blown up twice, once by an illiterate, whining school boy, and the next time by a drunken smuggler and some weird guy gurgling at him.

 Star Death - Zoom Astronomy
A star's life span and eventual fate are determined by the original mass of the star.
Stars that are 25 to 50 times that of the Sun live for only a few million years.
The star loses mass from its surface, producing a stellar wind (gas that is ejected from the surface of a star).

 Average Star Death   (Site not responding. Last check: )
This point is the trigger for the advanced evolution of the star, and over the next few billion years, it will evolve to a red giant star, and then decay into a planetary nebula.
A current example of a white dwarf is the star Sirius B. The outer layers that will form the planetary nebula will shine and become visible to outside observers, as is the nebula to the left of IC 418 (AKA The Spirograph Nebula), as taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.
Proxima Centauri, Earth's closest extrasolar star, is a red dwarf 1/5 the size of the sun, and if it were to trade places with the sun, it would shine on Earth only 1/10 as much as the sun currently does on Pluto.

 CBUB Fights: Borg Cube vs. The Death Star
The Death Star predictably uses the superlaser to destroy the Borg Cube, which doesn't have a chance to adapt because it is all over in one shot.
Because the Death Star is so huge, it takes a LONG time, but the Imperials are not known for the innovative tactics required to stop the onslaught.
The Death Star fires at the Borg cube, which is unable to adapt to the fire in time and the Borg ship is crippled or destroyed entirely.

 STAR WARS: Death Stars: Construction & Destruction
The Hutt Clans' Darksaber private Death Star was primarily built by taurill, semi-intelligent hairy four-armed simians who possessed a communal awareness and owed allegiance to Durga the Hutt.
Applying the same methods to Tarkin's Death Star reveals that the polar and equatorial diameters are approximately in the ratio 678:730 (aspect ratio 0.929).
It has sometimes been suggested that Tarkin's Death Star project strained the resources of the Empire, but this couldn't be literally true, considering the quick construction of the Death Star II (about 178 times as voluminous) over Endor.

 Death Star - Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
Death Starthroughout the millenia, from some built a long, long time ago in galaxies far, far away to the current American Empire version, under the command of Darth George Dubya Bush.
This "Death Star" is located in the constellation of Pisces, approximately 40 thousand A.U. (arbitrary units, see related matters on mechanics) from Earth.
So reliable is the deadly curse power of the Death Star that it has become a popular mechanism of assassination, the traditional approach being to point towards it in the company of the hapless victim, exclaim "That's no moon!" and watch as their eyes are diverted skywards, leading them to superstitious suicide.

 ST-v-SW.Net :: Death Star Sizes
However, the briefing schematic was rather dissimilar to the actual Death Star (the most eggregious error being the superlaser dish centered on the equator), and the assumption that the Rebel fighter indicators showed a range in meters does not hold.
A second Death Star of "nearly twice" that size would be either (a) somewhat smaller than 220-240 kilometers in diameter, based on a near-doubling of the diameter, or (b) up to nearly 150 kilometers in diameter, based on a near-doubling of the volume.
As a result, Saxton's scaling of the tiny bay to a height of 64 meters, followed by his scaling of the trench by that erroneous bay height, means that his 270 kilometer figure for the diameter of the second Death Star is flawed and unsupportable by the canon.

Three years later, as the second Death Star neared completion, another battle was waged to keep the massive weapon from being activated.

 Star Wars vs Star Trek Technology: The Death Star
The Death Star is capable of destroying any inhabitable planet in the galaxy, blasting it into rubble and hurling the rubble into space at fantastic speeds.
As an aside, the Death Star actually blew Alderaan apart at far greater velocity than necessary, so this figure relates to a minimum-scale planetary explosion, rather than the absurdly rapid explosion we see in the movie.
This binding energy is, in turn, the absolute lower limit for the energy that the Death Star must have imparted to Alderaan.

 IGN: Star Wars: Death Star Assault 3D Review
There was no reason for a stealth delivery, though, as Death Star Assault 3D is an enjoyable arcade-style shooter that gives mobile pilots a seat in the cockpits of both an X-Wing and the famed Millennium Falcon, Han Solo's smuggling ship turned Rebel icon.
Death Star Assault 3D's levels are like a highlight reel of cool moments -- even though the game is short, there are no lulls in the action.
Star Wars: Death Star Assault 3D is a good download for fans of the classic trilogy, as it covers some of the best moments -- and delivers very playable action with good control.

This titanic weapon is only part of an insidious plan to draw the Rebels into doomed combat, for the Death Star's incomplete structure hides its full operational capabilities, and it is a giant trap waiting to fatally ensnare the Rebel Fleet.

 Death Star to Open Day Care Center
After months of speculation, it was confirmed yesterday that the Death Star, the Empire's vaunted, planet-destroying space station, has added a new, state-of-the-art day care centre to its already vast array of capabilities.
The massive four-room day care centre, which, according to Grand Moff Tarkin, will "provide a safe and fun learning environment for tots between the ages of one and four," has already begun spring enrollment and is expected to be fully operational by July 1.
According to Death Star officials, the idea for the center sprang up after a number of parents complained about the lack of quality, affordable child care options on the Death Star.
