…then I have the site for you. Astrobites (http://astrobites.com/) is the “astrophysics reader’s digest”, a role which it fills admirably. (Full disclosure: one of the writers for the site is the daughter of a friend and professional colleague.) Astrophysics graduate students summarize research posted elsewhere, writing in a manner designed to be accessible to undergraduates. It is not for the casual reader, but if you really want to dig into the details of up-to-the-minute research, you will find a rich vein of nuggets here. Thanks to the writers of the site for helping me achieve my goal of learning something new every day!
