Mauna Kea is the best site for observations at submillimeter wavelengths in the northern hemisphere. I will present a broad overview of a range of programs in star and planet formation that we have carried out with the three submillimeter telescopes (CSO, JCMT , SMA) on the summit in the last few years. Topics to be covered include a 1.1mm survey of the Galactic plane, CO mapping of interstellar bubbles, starless cores in cluster forming regions, and circumstellar disks in Orion. I will end with some thoughts on how the cosmochemical discovery of 60Fe in our Solar System ties these subjects together.
