LISA PATHFINDER and gravity wave astronomy .

European Space Agency's LISA (laser interferometer space antenna) pathfinder to study gravity-wave astronomy as diff from electromagnetic-wave astronomy we know of so far, is a great step forward in science. 

The probe launched deep in space (see pic)  contains two chambers each having a cube of gold platinum alloy,  motionless, waiting to be disturbed by the faintest gravity waves from distant black holes. 

The existence of gravity waves will radically change our understanding of the vast and unknown universe.
