Leading experts, including Nobel Prize Winner Rai Weiss and OSU's very own John Beacom among others, discuss the future and far future of gravitational wave astronomy from upgrading LIGO to larger ground-based detectors such as The Einstein telescope and  The Cosmic Explorer to spaced missions such as LISA, DECIGO, and the Big Bang Observer.
