I will discuss recent experiments at JILA exploring an ultracold gas of fermionic polar molecules. We create a high phase-space-density gas of ground-state KRb molecules and study chemical reactions in a regime where quantum statistics, single scattering partial waves, and quantum threshold laws play dominant roles.
