Extract

Since 1977 we have been engaged on a project to survey the milliarcsecond structure and internal motions of a complete, unbiased sample of 65 radio sources (Pearson and Readhead 1984). One of the goals of the project was to discover more superluminal sources and find out how common they are. The sample contains three established superluminal sources (3C 179, 3C 345, and BL Lacertae); so far we have discovered three new superluminal quasars (0850+581, 1642+690, and 1928+738), and a fourth (3C 216) that may be superluminal. Thus at least six out of the 65 sources are superluminal, and we expect to find more as our observations proceed.
