This is one of the early spectra obtained with the SPIRE fourier transform spectrometer on Herschel. The spectrum is of one position on the Orion Bar, a region in the massive star-forming Orion Nebula. At this position the gas on the edge of the nebula is partly ionised by the intense radiation from nearby hot young stars.
