LISA Pathfinder

"It doesn't matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn't matter how smart you are. If it doesn't agree with experiment, it's wrong."

Richard P. Feynman

LISA Pathfinder (formerly known as SMART-2), the second of the ESA Small Missions for Advanced Research in Technology, is a dedicated technology demonstrator for the joint ESA/NASA Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) mission.
The technologies required for LISA are many and extremely challenging. This coupled with the fact that some flight hardware cannot be tested on ground due to the earth induced noise, led to the LISA Pathfinder (LPF) mission being implemented to test the critical LISA technologies in a flight environment. The scientific objective of the LISA Pathfinder mission consists then of the first in-flight test of gravitational wave detection metrology.
LISA Pathfinder carries two payloads, the European provided LISA Technology Package (LTP) and the NASA provided Disturbance Reduction System (DRS).
More information on LISA Pathfinder can be accessed via the links on the left.
Please note that these pages are largely directed to the Fundamental Physics and LISA Pathfinder/LISA communities. Other LISA Pathfinder pages under ESA Sci-Tech Portal are more specifically directed to the public and press.
