There Is a Death Star Sitting on the Roof of This House

New, 1 comment

We're all excited for the new Star Wars movie. But we are perhaps not quite as excited as Colby Powell, as evidenced by the fact that he enlisted his family to help him build a 23-foot-diameter Death Star and stick on the roof of his Lafayette, California house. The Death Star is composed of 162 Geohub connectors, 2,000 feet of half-inch PVC conduit pipe, 18 cans of paint, two parachutes, and LED lights (so that it can light up at night, of course).
