As I continue to plow through my backlog of astro-ph and gr-qc articles, I plan to post the ones I've found most interesting here. This will primarily serve as a personal archive (I've never caught on to Mendeley, etc). So here they are:
1502.04018 - Evidently the multiplicity of Sun-type stars is more like 50/50.
1408.4128 - It had never occurred to me to consider the effect the LMC has on the center-of-mass of the MW.
1503.03041 - Simulating the Moon Phases shortly after it's formation... cool!
1503.03714 - If you want to see AO images of Uranus (and actually showing clouds.)
1503.00701 - Interesting piece on whether the Earth is really the "gold standard" for habitability.
1206.6809 - DM detectors using DNA, 'nuff said!
