The detection of gravitational waves produced during the collision of two black holes, while remarkable, has only given us the first glimpses into this new realm of the universe. In order to fully explore the gravitational-wave landscape, new detectors are needed which will greatly expand our reach into the cosmos. In this talk, I'll (briefly) give a status report on the current LIGO-Virgo 'O2' observing run and then turn to plans for the future for improving the existing LIGO detectors' sensitivity as well as plans under development for a new generation of ground-based detectors.
