First Results from the Long Wavelength Array were presented in January 2012 at the AAS meeting in Austin, TX and at the URSI meeting in Boulder, CO. Summary:

  • LWA1 is an operational, world-class instrument.
  • There are many opportunities for discovery: pulsars, transients, cosmology…
  • LWA1 is not only a pathfinder for a large N array – it actually is one.
