We present several important nuclear reactions of light nuclei which affect crucially the origin of elements, nuclear γ-rays from astronomical objects, stellar evolution scenarios, and the chemical evolution of galaxies. Particular focus on nuclei of A ≲ 30 is given since in this mass region, experiments and/or theories of cluster models concerning nuclear few-body problems have been developed considerably.
