eLISA will be a large-scale space mission designed to detect one of the most elusive phenomena in astronomy - gravitational waves. With eLISA we will be able to observe the entire universe directly with gravitational waves, learning about the formation of structure and galaxies, stellar evolution, the early universe, and the structure and nature of spacetime itself.
LISA Pathfinder will pave the way for the eLISA mission by testing in space the very concept of gravitational wave detection. The LISA Pathfinder Mission is scheduled for launch from Kourou Spaceport on Arianespace Flight VV06 on 2nd December 2015.
