No, but they would probably experience near total annihilation. Your hands would be sore, too.

Wow, not one but TWO light-speed capable Hands Of Death that actually stays INTACT post-lightspeed-impact.

Holy crap.

It is "force is mass times acceleration", after all. Your "light speed rocket fists" would be striking with massive amounts of force, even though they have very little mass. It would easily exceed the stress levels of the materials involved in the "Death Star", because all that force has to be absorbed somehow, and it isn't like the Death Star is a solid mass of hardened steel the size of the Moon or something, not that that would help much.

It really is the difference between knocking on a door and punching through a door.

That's true

But since the same force is also going to be acting on the Fists-Of-Death, methinks the samesaid Fists-Of-Death would be pulverized afterwards

No way there are going to be indestructible lightspeed Fists-Of-Death
(Unless they're Chuck Noris's fists)

I would expect it to just punch a hole all the way through the death star. High force impacting a small surface area tends to punch holes, not split things in half.

And yes, the fist would be demolished too.

Have I become a local meme? Am I now infamous? Also, grammar please correct: "'jump" not "jumps."

Wouldn't your hands pretty much, explode from the impact?

Trump could do it with normal human hands.

All he has to do is tweet "Death stars need to be spheres not half spheres" and every liberal in the galaxy will protest that death stars need to be cut in half or else they are racist NAZI. The Death star production company would give in and cut the death stars in half.

If he had normal human hands as opposed to his little cocktail sausage hands you mean.

Must you turn EVERYTHING into an overblown rant against those who disagree with you? What do you think you gain? I doubt your contempt changes any minds in your favour. Quite the opposite. So is it about 'winning, ? Or are you looking for accolades from those who think as you do? I ask because I really wonder what you hope to gain?
