 A first white paper draft had been published in Spring 2014. At that time, the NSAC Nuclear Science Long Range Plan (LRP) process began, and we were tasked to create a nuclear astrophysics white paper for that purpose. We decided to use our white paper draft as a starting point of this process, and publish a final white paper that will be submitted to NSAC as input to the long range plan, and at the same time serves the community goals we envisioned when we started the process at the 2012 Town Meeting. ​ A first white paper draft had been published in Spring 2014.
