The White House scuppered the hopes of Star Wars geeks across the galaxy by rejecting an official petition calling for the US government to build a Death Star, the fictional planet-destroying space station featured in the Star Wars movies.

The response came to address the 34,435 people who signed the petition on the White House website.
