Humanity trying to hear Einstein's greatest achievement


LISA is an international proposed project headed by the European Space Agency with the aim of detecting more massive black hole and neutron star merger. The LISA with its three spacecraft separated by millions of mile (that's larger than Earth) relays lasers back and forth to detect distortion in space—gravitational waves. LISA is an upgrade to the current Earth-based detector LIGO (Light Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory) at Hanford in eastern Washington and all the way to another detector near Livingston, Louisiana.

More mergers of less massive black holes )


Ohh. @jent I think with LISA we would be able to "hear more mergers with more massive black holes and neutron stars.

I think the idea is to build a more sensitive device which will be able to detect less energetic waves thus allowing for more events to be caught.


Although you are correct at pointing out that it would be really less energetic, LISA is more sensitive at much lower frequency range which means longer wavelengths and much wider orbits. If two orbiting black hole/neutron stars have large orbits then they are potentially heavier than those with small orbit.

But, who knows what we will find out there. I think we will be once again shocked when we discover something unexpected.
