The TianQin Project(天琴計劃) plans to deploy around 2035 three satellites to form an equilateral triangle constellation, TianQin, in an orbit centered on the Earth with an altitude of about 105 kilometers, to detect gravitational waves in space. TianQin is expected to open the gravitational wave detection window in the frequency band of 10^-4 Hz ~ 1 Hz, opening our eyes towards the nature of gravity, the origin of black holes and the history of the universe. The ultimate scientific detection capability of TianQin depends on the level of breakthroughs that can be achieved with various key technologies, such as high-precision space inertial refence and long baseline laser interferometry, etc., which are all being researched. In this talk, the speaker will make a brief introduction to the TianQin project.

“Copernicus Webinar and Colloquium Series”: To promote scientific discussions during this pandemic, they are organizing an online seminar series, i.e. Copernicus Webinar Series, seeking the most outstanding speakers to introduce innovative ideas and important progress in the field of gravity and cosmology. This series is named after the famous Polish Astronomer, Nicolaus Copernicus, whose discovery eventually marked the dawn of modern science.
