Abstract: Absorption by hot molecules, which dominates the opacities of cool stars and brown dwarfs, have taken on a new significance with the discovery of exoplanets. At high temperatures molecules can undergo many billions of transitions: too many to be determined by experiment. Progress in computing molecular line lists under the auspices of the ExoMol project is described.
