The antiproton and heavy ion facilities at FAIR will provide ideal platforms for testing many novel aspects of Quantum Chromodynamics, the fundamental theory of hadron and nuclear physics. These include: (a) new probes of hadron and nuclear structure; (b) the breakdown of factorization theorems due to QCD lensing effects; (c) the nonuniversality of nuclear anti-shadowing; (d) the hidden-color degrees of freedom of nuclei; (e) the physics of charm and bottom production at high momentum fraction; (f) the production and decay of exotic heavy-quark hadrons; (g) higher-twist reactions such as digluon-initiated quarkonium production; and (h) color transparency and the dynamics of hard exclusive and diffractive reactions. I will also discuss recent advances in understanding color confinement and the fundamental light-front wavefunctions of hadrons in nonperturbative QCD.
