AbstractThis article describes a curriculum module developed around a Reagan-era SDI debate on the theme "Star wars: can the computing requirements be met?" This module may be appropriate for use in ethics-related or software-engineering related courses taught in undergraduate Information Systems, Information Technology, Computer Science, or Computer Engineering programs. It should also be appropriate for use in courses in general engineering ethics or technology and society.
