The talk will explore important new opportunities that will become available for nuclear astrophysics on the TSR@ISOLDE. Measurements will be performed for reactions influencing nucleosynthesis and energy generation in explosive environments such as novae, supernovae and X-ray bursters. In particular, there will be an emphasis on the use of high resolution transfer reactions for estimates of resonance strengths in regions of high level density, relevant for example for abundances of cosmic gamma-ray emitters, and capture reaction studies relevant for the production of p-process nuclei in supernovae.
