Description

The Telescope Array (TA) is the largest ultra-high-energy cosmic-ray (UHECR) detector in the northern hemisphere, which consists of 507 surface detector covering a total 700 km^2 and three fluorescence detector stations. The TA has been fully operating at Millard Country, Utah, USA, since 2008. In this presentation, we will discuss our recent results on the UHECR energy spectrum, mass composition and anisotropy based on the 5-year dataset collected by the Telescope Array experiment. Finally, we will introduce current efforts and our future plans (the TAx4 project and other related projects).
