Using the Submillimeter Array, we report the discovery of a compact low-mass bipolar molecular outflow from L1014-IRS and confirm its association with the L1014 dense core at 200 pc. Consequently, L1014-IRS is the lowest luminosity (L ~ 0.09 L☉), and perhaps the lowest mass, source known to be driving a bipolar molecular outflow, which is one of the smallest known in size (~500 AU), mass (<10-4 M☉), and energetics (e.g., with a force <10-7 M☉ km s-1 yr-1).

DETECTION OF A BIPOLAR MOLECULAR OUTFLOW DRIVEN BY A CANDIDATE FIRST HYDROSTATIC CORE
We present new 230 GHz Submillimeter Array observations of the candidate first hydrostatic core Per-Bolo 58. We report the detection of a 1.3 mm continuum source and a bipolar molecular outflow, both
DIRECT IMAGING OF A COMPACT MOLECULAR OUTFLOW FROM A VERY LOW LUMINOSITY OBJECT: L1521F-IRS
Studying the physical conditions of very low luminosity objects (VeLLOs; Lbol < 0.1 L☉) is important for understanding the earliest evolutionary stage of protostars and brown dwarfs. We report
Bipolar molecular outflow of the very low-mass star Par-Lup3-4
Context. Very low-mass stars are known to have jets and outflows, which is indicative of a scaled-down version of low-mass star formation. However, only very few outflows in very low-mass sources are

Intermediate between the prestellar and Class 0 protostellar phases, the first core is a quasi-equilibrium hydrostatic object with a short lifetime and an extremely low luminosity. Recent
