A new LIGO detector will be built in India by 2025:

Curious way that article is written makes it sound like it will be the third detector online, in fact by then it will be the fifth after Italy & Japan.

Thanks though as have been waiting to hear some more information on it.

It will be the third LIGO observatory, not the third gravity wave observatory.

I did wonder if that might be the explanation.
