Who Needs a Death Star When You Have a Bunch of Earthlings?

January 15, 2014 – So you think the Emperor’s planet-destroying Death Star is terrifying, but simply make-believe? Watch this video and see something much…more…terrifying.

Isao Hashimoto created this video to show all 2,053 nuclear detonations from 1945 to 1998. The detonations keep accelerating and don’t slow down until — well, wait, this video is incomplete. While seven nuclear-armed nations are depicted (USA, former USSR/Russia, UK, France, China, India and Pakistan), the video omits these other nations: North Korea (confirmed), Israel (won’t confirm or deny, but highly likely), South Africa (voluntarily abandoned its program), Ukraine (relinquished weapons), Belarus (relinquished) and Kazakhstan (relinquished). Finally, Iran is one step short of being nuclear-bomb ready (a year or two).

The Emperor would be most pleased.
