German Professor Who Loves Star Wars Has Repainted An Observatory Into A Giant R2-D2

In a galaxy far far away, Hubert Zitt, a professor at the Zweibrücken University of Applied Sciences in Germany, known for his Star Trek and Star Wars lectures, along with a small group, turned the Zweibrück Observatory of the Natural Science Association into a gigantic R2-D2 – and it's out of this world.


The sci-fi professor completed this project in September 2018, helped by his father-in-law Horst Helle, the master painter Klaus Ruffing and several students who helped. It has caught the eyes of Star Wars fans everywhere in the world. The most notable fan of this re-design was Star Wars actor Mark Hamill that tweeted about it, “R2-D2 Observatory Transformed Germans Into Giant Nerds.”


Zitt and his team are not the first fans to complete a Star Wars design. Goodsell Observatory at Carleton College in Minnesota was also turned into an R2-D2 back in 2010.


Dr. Hubert Zitt might be known now for his Star Wars and Star Trek expertise, but he started in electrotechnology. He received his doctorate from Saarland University in the field of systems theory of electrotechnology and he's now a tenured professor in the field at the University of Applied Sciences, Kaiserslautern, Zweibrücken. When he is not teaching electrotechnology he's spreading information about his beloved sci-fi pop culture.


He gained worldwide acclaim as a Global Top Speaker for his lectures on Star Trek. The first announced was a “Christmas lecture” where he presented the topic in a unique style that people could not get enough of. In 2005 he took his lectures on the road to other cities at universities and conventions like FedCon, the biggest Science Fiction Convention in Europe.


Zitt gained so much recognition in the field he wrote the preface of the book ‘Star Trek in Germany’ together with the son of the Star Trek inventor Gene Roddenberry in 2008. In the same year, he became a regular lecturer at the The University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas teaching ‘The Physics of Star Trek.’


R2-D2 stands proud, guarding the university. Knowing how hardcore Zitt is, maybe C-3PO will join him sometime in the future? Which building would that be? We'll be eagerly waiting to see what this hardcore fan has in store for us next!
