Teletalk

FIFI-LS has flown 6 flight series, including one southern deployment. In this tele-talk, we present the current status of FIFI-LS, the successes of our data pipeline, and some of the new science results. We will discuss the large maps of the Orion Nebula in several far infrared cooling lines of ionic, atomic, and molecular species. These data enable a detailed study of the heating and cooling in the closest massive star forming region, providing some early results of analyzing the diagnostic fine-structure line ratios, gas and dust temperatures. In addition, we will show brief results about recent observations of  NGC 2024, M82, M17, the Galactic Center, and 30 Dor.
