German Professor Who Is A Hardcore Star Wars Fan Has Just Repainted An Observatory Into R2-D2

In a galaxy far far gone( Germany) Hubert Zitt, prof at the Zweibrucken University of Applied Science and known for Star Trek and Star Wars lectures, along with a small team, transformed the Zweibruck Observatory of the Natural Science Association into a giant R2-D2- and it is out of this world.

The sci-fi professor completed the project in September 2018, aided by his father-in-law Horst Helle, the captain painter Klaus Ruffing and several helping students and it has caught the eyes of Star Wars followers everywhere. The most remarkable fan of the re-design was Star Wars performer Mark Hamill who tweeted about it, “R2-D 2 Observatory Transformed Germans Into Giant Nerds.”

While spectacular, Zitt and his squad aren’t the first fans to complete a Star Wars design challenge. Goodsell Observatory at Carleton College in Minnesota was also transformed into an R2-D2 back in 2010.

Dr. Hubert Zitt may be known now for his Star Wars and Star Trek expertise, but he got his start in electrotechnology. He received a doctorate from Saarland University in the field of systems theory of electrotechnology and is now a tenured professor in the field at the University of Applied Sciences, Kaiserslautern, Zweibrucken.

R2-D 2 stands proud, guarding the university, but knowing how hardcore this professor is, maybe C-3PO will join him sometime in the future? which house would that be? We will be eagerly waiting to see what this hardcore devotee has in store for us next!
