A small storage ring, ASTRID, for ions and electrons has been constructed. It is a dual-purpose machine, serving as a storage ring for either ions or electrons for synchrotronradiation production. The ring has for more than one year been operational with ions and has recently been commissioned for electron storage. Both these running modes will be described as well as results given from the first experiments with laser cooled ions. Finally, prospects for experiments with superhigh mass and isotope selectivity will be discussed.
