From Star Trek's photon torpedoes and Halo's energy swords to Doom's BFG 9000, Star Wars' Death Stars and Doctor Who's Reality Bomb, the industrious folks at Fat Wallet have compiled a comprehensive chart of the top science fiction weapons in the universe to dissect and discuss.  Fat Wallet's crew examined the numbers to compare real-world weapons with the awesome destructive might of their iconic science fiction equivalents, enlisting the help of physicists, scientists and engineers to break down these beloved weapons and the theoretical extent of their devastation in joules, an official energy measurement of “work done.”

Hunker down with this informative analysis of stuff that goes boom, bang and kablooey and tell us what needs to added to the list.
