LIGO successfully acquired more than one year of three-way coincident observation data using all three detectors during its fifth science run from November 2005 to the end of September 2007. All detectors reached sensitivity better than the design. For the two 4km detectors, the all-sky averaged detection range exceeded 15 Mpc with a signal-to-noise ratio of 8 for inspiral binary neutron stars of 1.4 solar masses each. The latest sensitivities of the detectors, results from the past science runs, and future prospects of LIGO are presented.
