How big is the Death Star?
The Death Star is so massive that it could easily be mistaken for a satellite. The first Death Star, 100 miles (160 kilometers) across its equator, was designed to be more than just a superweapon; it was a mobile battle station capable of hyperspace travel and housing an entire fleet. The Death Star was designed to be a world of its own, with nearly 2 million people living there in some capacity, including more than 342,000 members of the Imperial Army and Navy, and more than 25,000 Stormtroopers. When Palpatine’s Death Star was destroyed, he effectively lost millions of the Empire’s best and brightest.
Comparisons between the Death Star and the Imperial Star Destroyer highlight how unlikely an engineering project it was, and why it took over 20 years to complete, as construction began in the final years of the Old Republic. The biggest problem comes with power; the Sith have forgotten how to use kyber crystals as a power source. The secret was lost in the mists of time until Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen) discovered it. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story). His rediscovery of the kyber’s potential led to the completion of the Battle Station – but thankfully, he also managed to sabotage the project.

It could be huge – but it’s also proven to be explosive.
