We will discuss the potential science reach and technical feasibility of gravitational wave detectors based on precision atomic sensors.  Taking advantage of features used by the best atomic clocks in the world combined with established techniques of matter wave interferometry, a pair of atomic sensors using laser cooled strontium can achieve scientifically interesting gravitational wave strain sensitivities in a frequency band between the LISA and LIGO detectors, roughly 30 mHz to 10 Hz (the
