In his Nobel Prize acceptance speech in 1984, Prof. Willie Fowler of the California Institute of Technology, and the father of nuclear astrophysics said, "Direct measurements on short-lived radioactive nuclei and the excited states of all nuclei are impossible at the present
time. In this connection the production of radioactive ion beams holds great promise for the future"[Fow84]. It has taken a number of years to reach this point but this future promise is now here. The new ISAC facility combined with the DRAGON and TUDA experimental facilities will help realize this future.
