[48.01] HEAD I: Gravitational Radiation From Astrophysical Sources Introduction

A.K. Harding (NASA's GSFC/LHEA)

There has been significant progress recently in improving the sensitivity of searches for gravitational waves. The thresholds of new detectors being planned or under construction may for the first time reach predicted levels of gravity waves from coalescing neutron stars. Space-based detectors may be sensitive to signals from coalescing massive black holes. This session will present aspects of both expected predictions, current measurements and future expectations for gravity wave detection.
