The ELISA project aims to build a space-based gravitational wave observatory using a system of three spacecraft. These spacecraft will be placed in a triangular formation with precise separations between them. By measuring the tiny changes in distance between the spacecraft caused by passing gravitational waves, the ELISA mission will be able to detect and study these waves with high precision.
