Exciting new scientific opportunities are presented for the PANDA detector at the High Energy Storage Ring in the redefinedpp(A) collider mode, HESR-C, at the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) in Europe. The high luminosity, L ∼ 10 31 cm −2 s −1 , and a wide range of intermediate and high energies, √ s NN up to 30 GeV for pp(A) collisions will allow to explore a wide range of exciting topics in QCD, including the study of the production of excited open charm and 1
