The Death Star is the most iconic space stations in the history of sci-fi and one of the most recognizable symbols of Star Wars, and yet Luke and the Rebel Alliance figured out how to destroy it with two well-placed proton torpedoes.
They knew about the Death Star's built-in flaw thanks to some stolen plans, but we never got to see how the massive space station was built in the movies.
But now thanks to the hard work of two geeky and talented brothers named Benjamin and Isaac Botkin we can see how hard it would be, and how many pieces it would take, for the Empire to build a Death Star.
And with Benjamin's epic score accompanying the complex timelapse animation it's a mesmerizing look at the making of a legend.
