China's domestic gravitational wave research project initiated1 by the Sun Yat-sen University in July 2015, is awaiting governmental approval.

2015年7月由中山大学发起的中国国内引力波研究项目正在等待政府审批。
 
The U.S.-based Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory2 (LIGO) announced its ground-breaking discovery of gravitational waves on Thursday, which fulfilled the prediction of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity one century ago.
 
The new discovery has encouraged further studies into gravitational waves around the world, with China accelerating its domestic research, said Li Miao, dean of the Institute of Astronomy and Space Science of the university in south China's Guangdong Province.
 
According to Li, Tianqin has already made progress on some key technologies and will be carried out in four stages over the next 15 to 20 years, including the last step of launching three high-orbit satellites to detect gravitational waves.
 
The university plans to build a 5,000-square-meter observatory and a new lab occupying more than 10,000 square meters on Fenghuang Mountain in Zhuhai City, Guangdong Province.
 
Chen Yanbei, scientist with LIGO, said Tianqin will study the gravitational waves in the space, which is different from research made by the U.S. ground-based observatory.
 
"Tianqin will likely collect more information about the phenomenon, as a larger black hole may be detected in space compared with one detected on the ground," said Chen.
