Reactions involving unstable nuclei play an important role in many astrophysical sites. Radioactive ion beams provide a unique tool to investigate the structure of such unstable nuclei as well as the cross sections for many reactions of astrophysical relevance. This paper provides a brief survey of some recent results in experimental nuclear astrophysics with Radioactive Ion Beams, particularly for processes which take place during explosive hydrogen burning in novae and X-ray bursts. Some prospects for future studies at next generation facilities are also briefly discussed.
