Almost exactly 100 years after they were first predicted by Einstein, gravitational waves were finally observed for the first time on the ground by LIGO . Just three months later LISA Pathfinder was launched to pave the way for future gravitational wave observations from space. In this talk, some of the motivation behind the century old quest to observe gravitational waves is reviewed, and it is shown that the case for LISA has never been stronger. Finally, the recent in-flight results obtained by LISA Pathfinder are presented and discussed in the context of LISA .

This is a joint RaES, I Mech E and IET event. Please reserve a place at LISA
