Abstract: 
The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna is the space mission of the European Space Agency to observe gravitational waves. After an introduction to gravitational waves and to the recent direct detections made by Earth-based interferometers, we will describe the scientific potential of the LISA mission, in particular for what concerns cosmology and the physics of the very early universe.
