Kickstarter has revolutionized the way in which ambitious creators get their projects off the ground. Now, you can help us get our idea off the ground and into space, for the best (and last) Kickstarter of all time. Help crowdfunding make crowddestroying a reality!

Q: So after the Earth blows up, what about you guys?
A: If all goes according to plan, the immense amount of energy channeled through the doomsday laser will also vaporize the station itself. What a bonus!

Q: But isn’t suicide wrong?
A: Agreed! But the worst thing about it is the grief it causes for those left behind. Sooo…!

Q: Why don’t you pay for this yourselves?
A: Sure, as syndicated TV stars and independent industrialists our combined net worth is well over $600 billion, but we’d rather not absorb all the risk of building a giant-space laser entirely by ourselves.

Q: So wait, is this a Death Star™?
A: No, the Death Star™ is a fictional weapon in some other universe, far, far away. We are talking about a very real tool built for the express purpose of destroying the planet Earth. The Death Star™ was a failure because it only destroyed one planet; if we destroy one planet, it’s a huge success!

Q: But wait! I don’t want to be blown up by a space laser!
A: Don’t be silly. No matter what you’re going to die someday, so it might as well be along with everyone else. Also that wasn’t a question.

Q: But–
A: Thanks for the questions, everyone!
