The ALICE experiment at the LHC was originally designed to study the creation of the quark-gluon-plasma in heavy-ion collisions, a new state of matter in which quarks and gluons are not confined into hadrons. More recently, the versatility of both the Large Hadron Collider and the ALICE apparatus have given additionally access to a unique set of nuclear and hadronic physics measurements. The main results from this new and dynamic research area will be presented. The application of these findings to astrophysical challenges, ranging from the equation of state of neutron stars to the search for dark matter in space, will be discussed.

List of changes
- I changed "typical dark matter signals" to "a typical dark matter signal" and gave the particle including mass and the annihilation channel.
- I added a reference in Section 3 for the statement “interestingly, the interactions for the heavier multi-strange baryons can be reliably calculated ab initio using Lattice QCD.“
