The European Space Agency (ESA) has plans to build a space-based gravitational wave detector known as LISA. The recent LISA Pathfinder mission has demonstrated that the technology required for LISA will be sufficiently sensitive to detect gravitational waves. LISA will detect events that are invisible to LIGO and other Earth-based gravitational wave detectors. These include the mergers of distant supermassive black holes.

Keywords:   ESA, gravitational wave, LIGO, LISA Pathfinder, supermassive black hole
