The LIZA cornerstone an ESA/NASA collaborative mission

Paper Abstract

Small prototypes of gravitational wave detectors have been under development for over 30 years. But it is only now that we have the necessary technology available to build large instruments with good sensitivity. After several years of construction, the first ground-based interferometers will go into operation in 2001 and a space-based detector is expected to be launched in 2010. These instruments will complement each other because the gravitational wave spectrum extends over many decades in frequency. Ground-based detectors can only observe the audio-frequency regime are only accessible from space because of the unshieldable background of local gravitational noise on the ground.
