Gravitational waves carry information about regions of our universe which are otherwise obscured by interstellar matter or are 'invisible' due to the lack of emitting electro-magnetic radiation. Despite their prediction almost 90 years ago and 4 decades of experimental effort (summarized in this article) gravitational waves still await their direct detection. This article gives an introduction into the field of gravitational wave detection and points to more detailed papers within this proceedings issue.
