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 survey the entire universe directly with gravitational waves, to tell us about the formation of structure and galaxies, stellar evolution, the early universe, and the structure and nature of spacetime itself. There will be enormous potential for discovering the parts of the universe that are invisible by other means, such as black holes, the Big Bang, and other, as yet unknown objects.
