Does anyone here have experience using FITS files?

If you have no idea what a FITS file is, and you'd like to know, here is a link:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FITS

Here is a link to information about an application for working with FITS files:

I'm wondering if FITS could be the TIFF or DNG of the future (like twenty years from now, since it can handle such a great color depth and file sizes up to 500 million pixels or more, as well as files that are more than 2D).

I know this might not be the right forum for this question, but this forum is what I am used to (and where I'm comfortable), and I know some of you are scientists, who might have some experience with FITS files.
