Buckaroo Banzai spotted jotting down the Death Star formula all the way back in 1984.

Just how much firepower would be necessary to blow a planet to hell with something like the Death Star? These folks use a combination of physics and mathematics to figure out just what it would take to, as they say, "accelerate the planet's entire mass to escape velocity."

What's interesting is that it takes significantly less power to blow a franchise to hell.
