[en] Having completed its commissioning phase, the ARGOS ground layer adaptive optics facility is coming online for scientific observations at the Large Binocular Telescope, LBT. With six Rayleigh laser guide stars in two constellations and the corresponding wavefront sensing, ARGOS corrects the ground layer distortions for both LBT 8.4 m eyes with its adaptive secondary mirrors. Under regular observing conditions, this setup delivers a PSF size reduction by a factor ~2-3, compared to a seeing limited operation. With the two LUCI infrared imaging and MOS spectroscopy instruments receiving the corrected images, observations in the near infrared can be performed at high spatial and spectral resolution. We will discuss the final ARGOS technical setup and the adaptive optics performances. With first scientific observations being conducted, we will show that imaging cases with GLAO are boosting several science programs from cluster CMD, Milky Way embedded star formation, to nuclei of nearby galaxies or extragalactic deep fields. In the unique combination of ARGOS with the multi-object near infrared spectroscopy available in LUCI over 4x4 arcmin field of view, first scientific observations have been performed on local and high-z objects. Those high spatial and spectral resolution observations demonstrate the capabilities now at hand with ARGOS at the LBT.
