This weekend, we have a question about how to build a bridge between two planets. That was closed today as a duplicate of this question about whether there is enough material to build a bridge between stars.

The two questions are related but definitely are not duplicates... if you read the answers of the older question, you'll find no answer to the new question. The new question wants to know how it could be built. The old one just asked for handwavium "is there enough material."

I would like the newer question reopened. Can I get the community to please re-evaluate?
