The European Space Agency (ESA) has just green-lit their next flag-ship mission: the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) project. It is the technological successor to LIGO, the USA-led experiment that recently proved the existence of gravitational waves. LISA will be able to measure the same waves created by black hole mergers much further away than LIGO ever could.
