Abstract: We discuss airborne observations of rotational transitions of various hydride molecules in the interstellar medium, including H2O-18 and HCl. The detection of these transitions is now feasible with a new, sensitive submillimeter receiver which has been developed for the NASA Kuiper Airborne Observatory (KAO) over the past several years.
