eLISA/NGO (evolved Laser Interferometer Space Antenna/New Gravitational Wave Observatory) will add a new sense to our perception of the Universe - for the first time we will observe e.g. Black holes and Neutron stars directly and gain unique information about the behaviour, structure and early history of the Universe.

eLISA/NGO will open the gravitational wave window in space and measure gravitational radiation over a broad band of frequencies, from about 0.1 mHz to 100 mHz, a band where the Universe is richly populated by strong sources of gravitational waves.

eLISA/NGO consists of one mother- and two daughter spacecraft separated by a distance of 1 Mio km, forming the first Michelson interferometer in space.

The entire mission will be a European-only mission and stay within resources available in Europe.
