A gravitational-wave research centre under the China National Space Administration (CNSA) was inaugurated on 26 September in Zhuhai, Guangdong Province. It is located at the Zhuhai Campus of Sun Yat-sen University. The centre will develop a series of experimental satellite platforms and payloads to promote China's space gravitational-wave detection. The establishment of the research centre is a boost for the Tianqin programme, initiated by Sun Yat-sen University in 2015 and aiming at the detection of gravitational waves. The Tianqin 1 satellite was launched in December 2019. Two more satellites will follow until 2035.
