German Professor Who Is Hardcore Star Wars Fan Repaints Observatory As R2-D2



In a galaxy not so far away, a German professor has transformed an observatory into a giant R2-D2 because why the hell not. Dr. Hubert Zitt, a professor at the Zweibrücken University of Applied Sciences, is an expert in electrotechnology and Star Wars.

Although Zitt only received a doctorate for his knowledge in the field of systems theory of electrotechnology, yeah I have no idea what that is either, he is famous for the lectures he delivers in Star Wars. According to Bored Panda, the science-fiction fan decided to give the Zweibrück Observatory of the Natural Science Association a makeover, painting it to look like Star Wars‘ adorable robot R2-D2.


Recruiting his father-in-law Horst Hell, painter Klaus Ruffing and several of his students, Zitt transformed the observatory in September 2018, much to the delight of Star Wars fans.



Sharing an image of a Jawa standing outside the observatory, one person wrote on Instagram: ''On the grounds of the FH in Zweibrücken the students have had a reason to be happy for a few weeks. In collaboration with their Prof Hubert Zitt they have painstakingly transformed the dome of the observatory into the Star Wars droid R2-D2.' So I think that part can be really proud. A galactic strong result. May the force be with you!!!''
I bet Zitt is excited to see the latest Star Wars film, Episode IX, which is hitting cinemas later this year.


Ever since the release of Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi in 2017, fans have been eagerly awaiting any clues as to what they can expect from the next installment. The upcoming blockbuster will bring to a close the latest trilogy of the main Star Wars film franchise.

Now, Disney hurry up and drop the trailer, I can’t cope with the suspense!
