LIVERMORE -- Lawrence Livermore Laboratory scientists will talk about the technology involved in NASA's NuSTAR spacecraft at a "Science on Saturday" lecture at Livermore's Bankhead Theater on Saturday.

The NuSTAR, which launched in June 2012, uses technology developed in part by lab scientists to observe and photograph deep space using X-rays. Presenters include lab scientists Michael J. Pivovaroff and Bill Craig, and Granada High School teacher Tom Sheffler.

There are two sessions; at 9:30 and 11:15 a.m. Admission is free on a first-come, first-served basis. The Bankhead Theater is at 2400 First St., Livermore.
