The opportunities available to infrared, submillimeter, and millimeter wave astronomers are on the threshold of a revolution. Within the next 20 years, the number of new facilities coupled with their size, superb locations, and increased sensitivities will allow for markedly greater capabilities. This contribution will summarize the advances expected from those new telescopes operating between 30 μm and 1 cm.
