This is an interesting article on the 2013 ESA-NASA LISA mission to study low-frequency gravitational waves.

Let's hope Einstein@home has discovered high frequency gravitational waves long before then!

LISA Space Mission to Detect Gravitational Waves

> This is an interesting article on the 2013 ESA-NASA LISA mission

Note that its launch is merely "envisioned" for 2013. LISA, along with the other fantastic missions in NASA's "Beyond Einstein" program (http://universe.nasa.gov/program.html), has already been delayed and threatened by the American government's idea of "space exploration" (hint: it doesn't count unless you actually go there). Depending on how committed Bush's successors are to his criminally wasteful Moon/Mars fantasies, much of this crucial science may not be done.

An interesting video (best if

An interesting video (best if using broadband) concerning Lisa can be find at Euronews.
LISA's mission to detect Einstein's gravitional waves is the link.
