In this project, Aidan Lamb made a Death Star out of a levitating globe desk toy. First, Aidan stripped off the plastic map from the globe, then cut out and inverted a disk for the superlaser, drilled some small holes in the globe and inserted an LED, for some cool lighting effects, and painted the globe. It looks great! [Thanks, Dan!]
