An evolving Japanese gravitational-wave (GW) mission at deci-Hz band: B-DECIGO (DECihertz laser Interferometer Gravitational wave Observatory) will enable us to detect GW150914-like binary black-holes, GW170817-like binary neutron-stars, and the intermediate mass binary black-holes out to cosmological distances. The B-DECIGO band slots in between the aLIGO-Virgo-KAGRA-IndIGO (hecto-Hz) and LISA (milli-Hz) bands to broader bandwidth, and these sources emit GWs for weeks to years across the…
