After sixteen months of science operations, the LISA Pathfinder completed its mission having successfully demonstrated the technology to build ESA's future space observatory of gravitational waves.
Vicki and Christian will give an explanation of what LISA Pathfinder has achieved and why this is important; the future of gravitational wave detection in space and a description of the building, testing and launching the LISA Pathfinder.
Join Vicki Lonnon and Dr Christian Trenkel, space scientists from AIRBUS, as they tell their own involvement in the making, testing and launching of the satellite.
