BEACH / pA collisions in fixed-target mode at LHCb

LHCb has the unique capability to study collisions of the LHC beams on fixed targets. Internal gas targets of Helium, Neon and Argon have been used so far. Updated results and prospects on soft particle production and open and hidden charm productions will be presented. The measurements are of great interest to cosmic ray physics. The charm production measurements provide crucial constraints on intrinsic charm and nuclear parton distribution functions at moderate and large Bjorken x.
