beyond models deriving from the Standard Model.
Of course in the next decade zetaflop-yr computation will reveal the properties of the 4+ baryons... He, Li,..C ..U? etc
The last decade (2010-2020) was limited only by petaflops .. not by "conceptual issues"
but was a "truly remarkable period for nuclear physics"
despite the proton magnetic moment still in error by 15% and.the deuteron's by 30%...

Determining the three-body and higher-body interactions among nucleons and hyperons directly from QCD will be a remarkable achievement for Lattice QCD, and will provide crucial input into th ecalculations of the structure and interactions of light nuclei.
During the last year the first calculations of three- and four- nucleon systems were reported.
Such calculations are presently difficult, but are primarily limited by the available computational resources and not by conceptual or formal issues.
It is anticipated that the three-nucleon interactions will be calculated with high-precision with Lattice QCD during the next decade.
Beyond the three-body systems, we expect that some of the properties and
interactions of light nuclei will be calculable with Lattice QCD during the same time-period.
The dream of being able to perform reliable calculations of the interactions among multiple nucleons and hyperons, and of the structure and reactions of light-nuclei, directly from QCD is starting to be realized. The path forward is clear,
and the next decade will be a truly remarkable period for nuclear physics
