Recent experimental challenges to study the explosive hydrogen burning at extremely high temperatures are discussed. Along the nucleosynthetic pathway, discussions were made especially for the medium mass region, where we have possible waiting points and bottle necks which influence not only the light curve but also the production of heavy elements including the anomalously abundant p-nuclei at A = 80-100. Two approaches were discussed for the problem; one is the precision mass measurements and the other one is the half-live measurement of very short lived isotopes. A scope of the field is also discussed.
