In a galaxy far, far way . . .

June 21, 2021

“In a galaxy far far away (Germany) Hubert Zitt, professor at the Zweibrücken University of Applied Sciences and known for Star Trek and Star Wars lectures, along with a small team, transformed the Zweibrück 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 master painter Klaus Ruffing and several helping students and it has caught the eyes of Star Wars fans everywhere. The most notable fan of the re-design was Star Wars actor Mark Hamill who tweeted about it, “R2-D2 Observatory Transformed Germans Into Giant Nerds.”

While spectacular, Zitt and his team 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, Zweibrücken. When he’s not teaching electrotechnology he is spreading information about his favorite sci-fi pop culture.”

A little history . . .

June 16, 2021

. . . some anthropology, mythology, research and a little conjecture have come together to shed new light on the exploration of Antarctica and the Southern Pacific Ocean.

While European explorers landed on Antarctica in the 1820s, a recent report in the Journal of the Royal Society of New Zealand puts forth the theory that Maori mariners landed on that southern continent as early as the 7th century.

Their work is based on the history of Polynesian people traveling long distances across the Pacific coupled with the oral traditions of the Maori – who were instrumental in assisting the European explorers with navigating the route to Antarctica, providing maps and guidance on their ventures. The authors said they hope that further research will enrich the pool of knowledge regarding these early explorers.
