Talk title: The advances and prospects of gravitational-wave astronomy

Abstract: In just a few years since the first direction gravitational-wave detection of a binary black hole merger on 14 September, 2015, almost a hundred sources have now been observed.  Among other advances, these observations of compact binary mergers are teaching us about stellar and binary evolution and dynamics in dense stellar environments.  This is an opportune moment to appreciate the fantastic growth of the field, reflect on what we learned so far, consider the near-term prospects, and make some educated guesses for the long-term future.
