Paper Abstract

High resolution X-ray spectroscopy of optically thin sources is discussed. Based on a brief description of the general properties of highly ionized, optically thin sources and their spectra, and a set of specific examples drawn from the recent literature, I outline arguments for the importance of routine spectroscopy of faint sources as a science driver for future missions.
