The gravitational-wave hunter LISA will be switched off after its successful mission. The data gathered by the tiny probe will help scientists build space instruments that detect gravitational waves -- for a better look at the universe.
Gravitational waves were first detected on Earth. But soon the search continues in space. This Tuesday the satellite LISA Pathfinder will be switched off. Her data will live on in a new experiment.
It might not be any bigger than your own refrigerator, but the TESS telescope will deliver the stuff of your wildest sci-fi fantasies: Earth-sized planets by the hundreds, and all in the next two years.
The LISA Pathfinder satellite is Europe's moonshot mission in the international race to detect gravitational waves. Has the team behind it made a breakthrough in just three short months? Here's the lowdown.
After three months of operation, LISA Pathfinder scientists are confident their technology "exceeds expectations." Europe may now become the first collective to investigate gravitational waves in space.
