The AdvancedLIGO detector just started working a couple of years ago, and has not even reached its planned sensitivity yet. However, it is obvious to scientists that the sensitivity of LIGO will not be enough for real gravitational-wave astronomy.
I will talk about what limits LIGO, and how an underground cryogenic detector 2.5 times longer than LIGO can bypass these ...
