We show that Lubin-Tate spectra at the prime are Real oriented and Real Landweber exact. The proof is an application of the Goerss–Hopkins–Miller theorem to algebras with involution. For each height , we compute the entire homotopy fixed point spectral sequence for with its -action by the formal inverse. We study, as the height varies, the Hurewicz images of the stable homotopy groups of spheres in the homotopy of these -fixed points.

There will also be a pretalk in Hylan 1106A at 2:10.
