LISA Pathfinder, exploratory space mission for gravitational waves successfully completed
On 18 July 2017 at 20:00 (Italian time), after about 16 months of activity, the final commands were sent to shut down the LISA Pathfinder satellite, the European mission that detected for the first time, and in space, the low frequency gravitational waves predicted by Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity. The extraordinary success achieved by LISA Pathfinder paved the way for the new European LISA-Laser Interferometer Space Antenna mission, recently included in ESA’s Cosmic Vision Programme, and scheduled for 2034.
