    A good paper to recommend for those new to this message board? Covers a lot on learning to read astronomy papers and keep up with space news.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of scientific inquiry! On this journey you'll be reading many ×10^N papers in your discipline. Therefore, efficiency in digesting and relaying this information is paramount. In this guide, we'll review how you can participate in your local astronomy seminars. Participation takes many forms, from contributing a recently discovered article to the discussion of a published paper. In this guide, we'll begin by providing some suggested introductory activities for beginner scientists. Then we discuss how to locate papers and assimilate their results. Finally we conclude with a discussion on paper presentation and note storage. This guide is intended for an undergraduate and graduate student audience, and we encourage faculty to read and distribute this guide to students.
    Do good work. —Virgil Ivan "Gus" Grissom

    Very interesting and helpful. In addition, I am already trying to understand these recommendations. I am a beginner and I find it very useful for those who have just joined this hobby. There is still a lot of incomprehensible things in astronomy for me. I certainly do not pretend to be a scientist, but I want to understand what you are doing.
