Discussion Group News

At the beginning of the weekly Discussion Group meetings, we have a news section where members can mention any relativity or cosmology related news items of the week, or any interesting papers (which we may talk about at a later date). Here is a page where members can upload links to any such items they may want to bring up at the meetings.

<!-- The STARTINCLUDE and STOPINCLUDE mark out which sections will be shown on the Discussion Group page. Keep only most recent links. -->
