Type: Oral presentation
Session: Global Scenario
Track: Global Scenario
Questions: a) What are the ultimate science goals for ground GW detectors? (e.g., see all BH inspirals in universe with significant signal >1 Hz) b) What will we already have done / can we do with aLIGO/AdV by 2030 (or so): guess e.g., 3x better than design sensitivity to 10 Hz c) is what remains enough scope to motivate new Observatories? does it point to specific design needs (e.g., LF, triangles, number of observatories)? d) given the long term perspective of a 3rd generation GW observatory, what is it that remains? How to assess the scientific importance and needs of the currently unknown? e) what is the possible configuration of the future mixed network of 2G+ detectors and 3G observatories; specifically, is there a role for ~3-4 km surface instruments? f) what are the next actions in this domain?
