Simply amazing.
The thermal exhaust port of your Death Star™ plays a critical role in the dissipation of excess waste heat produced by the Death Star's energy reactors. Under no circumstances is the thermal exhaust port to be covered, obstructed or modified in any way.

Hey, my Antikythera! I wondered where I'd left that.

We now have definitive proof that space-faring aliens built the pyramids (the good ones, not the other ones) and the Nazca lines, killed off the dinosaurs and tried to replace them with platypi and reverse-vampires, and gave out astronomical devices. Or we can take a more serious-minded approach to this and say that is the work of time travel. Maybe Atlanteans. Could be Sasquatch.

On an actual serious sidenote, that sucker sat on display in a museum until someone had the wacky idea to x-ray it. If they hadn't we probably would not be having this discussion.

I've been interested in this thing for a while, and they X-Ray'd it a while back. It wasn't the inner workings that baffled them, it was all the small parts, and how it fit together. It was a bit like trying to assemble the Lego Star Destroyer with no instructions, blindfolded. And you had to pick up the pieces from the bottom of the ocean. With one hand tied behind your back. While being attacked by cougars. Ocean-going cougars.
