ABSTRACT
A new era of astronomy is near, in which interferometers on Earth and pulsar timing observations will provide an entirely new view of the universe using gravitational waves. These waves will complement the very different images from electromagnetic waves (such as conventional telescopes) and will illuminate systems from which we detect no electromagnetic emission.
