Abstract
The scientific objectives of a submillimetre heterodyne mission are summarized. Interstellar submillimetre wave radiation emanates from a wide diversity of "cool" astronomical objects ranging from the recombination era of the early universe to circumstellar shells of late type stars and planetary atmospheres within the solar system. The present design status of the Far-Infrared and Submillimetre Space Telescope (FIRST) is reported. Some recent new scientific observations pertaining to interstellar molecular submillimetre spectroscopy are reviewed.
