"A gravitational-wave research center under the China National Space Administration (CNSA) was inaugurated on Sunday in the city of Zhuhai, in Guangdong Province."


According to the CNSA, the gravitational-wave research center, located at the Zhuhai Campus of Sun Yat-sen University, will develop a series of experimental satellite platforms and payloads to promote China's space gravitational-wave detection.

At the inaugural ceremony, Wu Yanhua, deputy director of the CNSA, said that the CNSA and Sun Yat-sen University would build the research center into an international frontier for gravitational-wave detection.

The establishment of the research center is a new milestone for the Tianqin program, said Luo Jun, president of Sun Yat-sen University and an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
