Abstract

The Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) instrument covers the spectral range 912-1187 Å with a resolving power of 15,000 to 20,000. This spectral region provides unique access for the study of many atomic and ionic species found in the interstellar medium, intergalactic medium, stars, and extragalactic objects. This paper summarizes the status of the mission and then discusses the need for higher resolution spectroscopy. Although the FUSE instrumental resolution is sufficient to separate most species, it usually it is not adequate for analyzing the gas velocity structure in detail. Implications for future missions are discussed.
