Space-based gravitational-wave detectors such as the planned NASA--ESA mission LISA target the low-frequency band between 0.1 mHz and 1 Hz. This band is populated by thousands of detectable astrophysical sources, which will enable many exciting investigations: exploring hierarchical galaxy formation scenarios, sampling the strong-field regime of general-relativistic dynamics, taking a census of Galactic compact binaries, characterizing the nature of the massive objects at galactic centers, and much more.
