Space Based Gravitational Waves Detector Technology Meets The Challenge

Hey Space Placers!

Gravitational Wave (GW) Astronomy - see my previous posts on the discovery of GWs - just got a huge lift.

The European Space Agency's (ESA) GW technology demonstration spacecraft, LISA Pathfinder, has been shown to be more than up to the task of detecting GWs in space.

NASA has contributed to the mission as can be seen in this video and article.



The future of GW Astronomy is indeed bright. I look forward to the amazing discoveries to come.
