LISA Pathfinder is ESA's technology demonstration mission for possible future missions to observe gravitational waves from space. Launched on 3 December 2015, the spacecraft reached its operational orbit in January and is undergoing final checks before starting its science mission on 1 March.

Jann that's the definition of a proof of concept test.

Please explain what the definition of a proof of concept test is.

When you run a test not to create a result but to prove if your methodology is viable. That is exactly what Lisa Pathfinder is supposed to do. That is why it is called "Pathfinder".

A few are being split but I've received none.

Gravitational wave detectors in space is already underway.
LISA Pathfinder will test technology for gravitational-wave observatories in space.

Not really, AFAIK this is a proof of concept test, Lisa Pathfinder is not looking for GW.

We've been stuck on 60 channels of MB to split for quite some time

Presently...54.

It advanced because I posted about it, that always works.

I admit the answer walks a tight thin line. Even a misguided one. It would best be in religion this device. Think Catholics and some of their way odd ideas.

I see your point about religion but it could be very useful over in politics.

With only 110 MB channels to be split either new disks will be mounted or we will soon run out of work.

On the upper left coast the celebration has begun.
All hail Thor and the celebration

Perhaps that means that the laws of physics were fixed at T=0

Interesting point

A very happy Thor's day to all and to help with our celebration we have the great news from LIGO.
Hail Thor and his design which probably includes gravity

They haven't even cranked it up to full sensitivity, AFAIK it has been run for about 3 months at 30% of it's new potential.

On second thought moving it to politics might be OK and even useful for some of the posters.

Perhaps someone will get it all aligned again.

That's a screwy comment.

How true I had a red point Siamese who sat under the aquarium and wait for the occasional fish to jump out.
