New Gravitational Wave Observatory

(proposed space mission to detect gravitational waves)

The New Gravitational Wave Observatory (NGO or eLISA) was a proposed European Space Agency space mission to detect Gravitational Waves by measuring the distance between three spacecraft using laser Interferometry. It was a 2011 scaled down variation on the LISA proposal. After submission to the ESA, it was not accepted.
