Both types of gravitational wave detector, the resonant detectors and the
laser interferometers, are starting to reach very interesting sensitivity
levels and the chances of really measuring gravitational waves are increasing
rapidly. At the end of this year, the first spherical detector MiniGRAIL will
be ready for long term data taking and sharing the data with the other groups.
