HIFI obtained its first spectra on 22 June during the in-orbit commissioning phase of the Herschel mission. These observations, made before fine-tuning or in-orbit final calibration was performed, demonstrate that the instrument was performing better than expected. The first target for HIFI was DR21, a giant molecular cloud.
