For Golden Anniversary, Abrams reassembles original star projector

This year MSU’s Abrams Planetarium is celebrating 50 years. To mark the milestone the Planetarium's original star projector is being resembled by one of the original staffers. Current State’s Emanuele Berry spoke with John Hare, who worked at Abrams nearly 50 years ago.

After working at the Abrams for many years, Hare left for another planetarium and eventually founded his own company which repairs planetarium equipment. Hare says repairing Abram's old projector was a pleasure.
