​The energy range covered by the Telescope Array experiment, from 2x10 15 eV to 2x10 20 eV, contains the end of the galactic cosmic ray spectrum, the galactic-extragalactic transition, important information about the nature of cosmic rays throughout this energy region, and what probably are the highest energy particles in the universe. As time permits, I will discuss measurements of the spectrum and composition of cosmic rays, and searches for anisotropy (and hence the sources of these particles).
