myADS

If you ever feel brave, and want to read some heavy duty astronomy research papers, the place to start from is the Astrophysics Data System (ADS) run by NASA. It lets you search for papers in a very comprehensive way. Last year I joked that it would soon be like Amazon with a "people who read about Active Galactic Nuclei also read..." feature. Although I was joking at the time, it seems that it has actually happened, as the good people at ADS have launched myADS. This lets you perform two custom searches and get the results on a webpage, by email and even as an RSS feed.
