Yes exactly, not too mention that a black hole like that would destroy that entire galaxy, not just a planet. And as you say, the Death Star is waaay cooler anyways. Wink

Right, and they generally consume the entire galaxy surrounding where they were formed. So small ones hat only eat planets is a tad unrealistic.

No Ben... We have lots of star-sized black holes floating around in our own galaxy right now.

The ones in the center of galaxies are ENORMOUS. Over a million times bigger than the Sun. Wink

NOTE: Science = nerdiness, so we are on topic... Razz

Yeah, Black Holes in or galaxy though are balanced meaning that gravitationally they are locked in place, and thus do not consume everything. That's the key, but "rogue" Black Holes are much more dangerous, since they are not gravitationally locked in place. Physics class FTW! Wink

But forming a small black hole the size of a planet wouldn't destroy the whole galaxy though lol...

It would eventually, because what's to keep the Black Hole from growing? Razz

Alright, so it's obvious there is a LOT of variability here. Razz It would actually probably depend on the exact situation. So you win, for now. tongue
