Luke Skywalker and his X-Wing fighter made an emergency landing against the real background of the Westfälische Volkssternwarte und Planetarium Recklinghausen. R2D2 helps him to repair a defective component.
I was born in Recklinghausen, Germany. My childhood was in the 1970's. In this time, the real spaceflight was very succesfull and therefore the Sci-Fi was very popular. My favorit Sci-Fi was Star Trek and it is till today. In this time i visited the "westfälische Volkssternwarte und Planetarium Recklinghausen" and this was the beginning for interrest in Astronomy. As an Dipl.-Ing. (FH) in electrical engineering i'm interested in technique and Science. Now, i discoverd the art and so i paint images in Airbrush mixing technique. Now, i live in Meppen.
