Nuclear Astrophysics is a field at the intersection of nuclear physics and
astrophysics, which seeks to understand the nuclear engines of astronomical
objects and the origin of the chemical elements. This white paper summarizes
progress and status of the field, the new open questions that have emerged, and
the tremendous scientific opportunities that have opened up with major advances
in capabilities across an ever growing number of disciplines and subfields that
need to be integrated. We take a holistic view of the field discussing the
unique challenges and opportunities in nuclear astrophysics in regards to
science, diversity, education, and the interdisciplinarity and breadth of the
field. Clearly nuclear astrophysics is a dynamic field with a bright future
that is entering a new era of discovery opportunities.
