Making extremely high resolution images of the cores of extremely energetic
galaxies (quasars and radio galaxies). From the cores of many of these
galaxies are seen"jets" of particles being ejected at highly
relativistic velocities. High resolution images will help to determine
the mechanism behind the formation and collimation of these jets.
Monitoring the structural changes in these jets.
High resolution imaging of the emission from radio emitting stars.
Monitoring the motions of extremely small but very intense sources of radio
emission known as water masers.
Determining the size distribution of OH and water maser sources.
