Title: Masses and lifetimes for r -process nucleosynthesis: FRIB outlook

Nuclear masses and lifetimes are key inputs for calculations of rapid neutron capture (r-process) nucleosynthesis. Masses and half-lives for thousands of nuclei from the valley of stability to the neutron drip line are required and only a fraction have been experimentally measured. Here in this paper we examine the promise of the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, now under construction at Michigan State University, to dramatically reduce uncertainties in r-process abundance patterns due to uncertain masses and half-lives.
