Abstract: The observation of intense gamma-ray line emission from the Orion complex, attributed by Bloemen et al. to de-excitation of cosmic-ray carbon and oxygen nuclei, has important implications for emission from Orion in the infrared and in high-energy gamma-rays, and also for the theories of cosmic-ray origins. Some of these implications are briefly pointed out.
