The Superconducting FRagment Separator (Super-FRS) will be the most powerful in-flight separator in the world. Rare isotopes of all elements up to uranium will be produced at relativistic energies and spatially separated within a few hundred nanoseconds, enabling the study of very short-lived nuclei. The Super-FRS is the central device of the NUSTAR collaboration.
