The ongoing China-led international collaboration project Tianq
in, a space-based gravitational wave detection syste
m scheduled to be completed by 2035, is expected to significantly improve unders
tanding of major cosmic phenomena, including black holes, scientists said.
Tianqin uses the Chinese words tian, meaning sk
y or heavens, and qin, meaning stringed musical instrument.
It will consist of three satellites forming an equilater
al triangle around Earth at an orbit of 100,000 kilometers.
Tianqin will work to detect gravitational waves, whic

t cosmic events, such as colliding black holes, supernovas and even the birth of the universe.
