The Origins Space Telescope is one of four large satellite studies that have been submitted to the US Astro2020 Decadal Review. In the talk I will lay out the three main science goals that defined the design of Origins. The satellite and its 5 instruments will be described. I will then focus on one of the instruments, the HEterodyne Receiver for Origins (HERO), which is the first heterodyne array receiver to be designed for a satellite.
