The planned generation of lasers and heavy ion colliders renews the hope to see electron-positron pair creation in strong classical fields. This old prediction is usually referred to as spontaneous pair
creation. We observe that both - heavy ion collisions and pair creation in strong laser fields - are instances of the theory of adiabatic pair creation. We shall present the theory and conclude that pure laser based experiments are highly questionable.
