We are entering a new era of gravitational-waveastronomy. The ground-based interferometers have reached their initial designsensitivity in the audio band. Several upper limits have been set foranticipated astrophysical sources from the science data. The advanced detectorsin the US and in Europe are expected to be operational around 2015. Newadvanced detectors are also planned in Japan and in India. The first directdetections of gravitational waves are expected within this decade. In themeanwhile, three pulsar timing array projects are forming an internationalcollaboration to detect gravitational waves directly in the nanoHertz rangeusing timing data from millisecond pulsars. The first direct detection ofnanoHertz gravitational waves are also expected within this decade. In thispaper, we review the status of current gravitational-wave detectors, possibletypes of sources, observational upper limits achieved, and future prospects fordirect detection of gravitational waves.
