The Telescope Array Experiment the largest extensive air-shower cosmic-ray detector in the northern hemisphere. TA combines three fluorescence detectors and a scintillation counter surface detector. The physics goals of TA are to measure the spectrum, composition, and arrival direction anisotropy of ultrahigh energy cosmic rays. We will present the latest results from Telescope Array.

Measurement of the flux of ultrahigh energy cosmic rays from monocular observations by the High Resolution Fly's Eye experiment.
TLDR
The cosmic ray spectrum is measured using the two air-fluorescence detectors of the High Resolution Fly's Eye observatory operating in monocular mode to fit the spectrum to a model consisting of galactic and extragalactic sources. Expand
Correlation of the highest energy cosmic rays with nearby extragalactic objects
Using data collected at the Pierre Auger Observatory during the past 3.7 years, we demonstrate that there is a correlation between the arrival directions of cosmic rays with energy above {approx} 6 xExpand
Indications of proton-dominated cosmic-ray composition above 1.6 EeV.
TLDR
These measurements constrain models in which the galactic-to-extragalactic transition is the cause of the energy spectrum ankle at 4x10(18) eV, and are consistent with a predominantly protonic composition of cosmic rays when interpreted via the Q GSJET01 and QGSJET-II high-energy hadronic interaction models.
