ESA Science & Technology - NGO
The New Gravitational wave Observatory (NGO) is a space mission designed to measure gravitational radiation over a broad band at low frequencies, from about 100 µHz to 1 Hz, a band where the Universe is richly populated by strong sources of gravitational waves. It was the result of the reformulation, in 2011, of the LISA mission. In May 2012, NGO was not selected by the SPC to continue into the definition phase.
