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 (<10-44 M ), and energetics (e.g., with a force <10-7 M km s-1 yr-1).
