Why destroying the second Death Star wasn't a good idea after all

Yet another alternate ending to Star Wars: Episode VI—Return of the Jedi shows that, perhaps, the Rebel Alliance didn't do their research into the blast radius of a moon-sized space station.

You'd think, given that the Rebels already blew up one Death Star, they'd have a sense of just how big a bang that would be. And, perhaps, detonating a Star of Death that's in orbit around a populated planet might not be the wisest course of action.

I'll bet if they had more Jedi, someone would've raised their hand at the "torching another orbital platform" meeting.
