Peruse away! Astrophysics in 2005 Authors: V. Trimble, M.J. Aschwanden, C.J. Hansen Comments: 1 fig We bring you, as usual, the Sun and Moon and stars, plus some galaxies and a new section on astrobiology. Some highlights are short (the newly identified class of gamma-ray bursts, and the Deep Impact on Comet 9P/ Tempel 1), some long (the age of the universe, which will be found to have the Earth at its center), and a few metonymic, for instance the term "down-sizing" to describe the evolution of star formation rates with redshift. http://arxiv.org/pdf/astro-ph/0606663"
