Is it possible to blow up a planet?

with a laser or death star

Report as

Not really ... since lasers and particle beams don't "explode" things, they burn through them.

However, you could use a laser or particle beam to destabilize a planet ... weaken a spot here or there, causing tectonic plates to shift or causing "super volcanoes" to erupt... or melting glaciers to cause flooding.

well, considering nobody has tried it and nobody has access to exploding lasers, we won't know until someone tries it.

No. The most powerful "beam weapon" known in the universe is the gamma ray burst caused by a supernova. If it were to hit a planet like Earth directly it would strip the atmosphere off and of course kill every living thing in an instant, but it would not destroy the planet itself.
