The next decade will see the construction of the first genuine gravitational-wave observatories, where we may have the luxury of several detections per week. Gravitational wave physics will then move to the forefront of astrophysics, and it will have a significant impact on cosmology and fundamental physics as well. I give an overview as well as specific examples of what we can expect from such observatories as Advanced LIGO, LISA, and Einstein Telescope.
