Perspective: The Death Star's Size Vs Florida

September 20, 2016

This is a composite shot created by college student Kevin Wisbith comparing the size of the first Death Star with Florida. Doesn't look so big now, does it? It's estimated the original Death Star was about 140 - 160km (87 - 99 miles) in diameter, or about a quarter of the length of Florida. My penis? My penis is at least two Floridas. AND HALF A GEORGIA. Peaches and peanuts, baby. "What?" *gyrating* I can reach Puerto Rico from here.

Thanks to Rose, who agrees perspective is everything.

    Didn't your mama ever tell you size doesn't matter? Lol! It may not be big but, um, it still blew up planets! ;)

    That's no moon... Oh wait, isn't Phobos and Deimos smaller than this compared to Mars?

  • GeneralDisorder

    The first death star was allegedly 140 to 160 km diameter. Phobos is measured at 22.2km and Deimos is measured at 12.6km. And Earth's moon is 3,474 km. Planet Mercury is 4,879 km. Anyway, yeah. As celestial bodies go, the Death Star was easily moon sized. Too small to be a planet or planetoid.

    Endor and Alderan suddenly seem like very, very small planets.

  • Richard H Sanford

    Well, Endor was a moon.

  • DrZanz

    >_< Dammit yea you're right.

    Still, my point was everything looked a lot bigger.

    Just wait until a tie fighter drops a couple of missiles up the Okefenokee exhaust port.
