I discuss a few selected topics on nucleosynthesis and nucleo-cosmochronology in faint, if not totally illusory, hopes of helping to gain a clear perspective of the future astronuclear physics. First I illustrate a few puzzles that remain to be solved by observational astronomy, theoretical astrophysics, and some nuclear physics experiments so as to promote the understanding of nucleosynthesis from the early universe till to-day. Next I pick a few exemplifying cases of difficult problems to which the study of stellar evolution and nucleosynthesis is facing up. Finally I make an attempt of putting nucleo-cosmochronology in perspective. Admittedly, some of my comments will be "politically incorrect".
