Neil DeGrasse Tyson Reveals His Biggest Problem with the Death Star
Everyone knows that the Death Star has a huge design flaw, since it was completely annihilated by a single shot to its exhaust port. But reliable pop culture nit picker Neil DeGrasse Tyson has a different problem with the Death Star (maybe because the exhaust port goes without saying), specifically with its capability to destroy entire planets, as seen with poor Alderaan.
Tyson is a noted Star Trek enthusiast, and has often come out in favor of Star Trek over Star Wars in that age-old debate. But he admits that Star Trek wasn't any better in this regard, as Spock destroyed Romulus using red matter, a type of matter of which one drop could cause a black hole that consumed an entire planet.
