The NUSTAR Collaboration will perform experiments with relativistic exotic nuclei and superheavy elements at GSI and FAIR. Presently, several new FAIR detector systems are under construction for high-resolution spectrometer experiments, decay spectroscopy, reaction studies with internal and external targets, and for experiments with stopped and re-accelerated beams. Due to the delayed start of the FAIR project, the new FAIR detectors will be used at GSI with beams from the existing accelerators (UNILAC, SIS-18/ESR) and set the scene for new experimental avenues, not existing so far. The planned intermediate research program and the new opportunities are outlined.
