Not all of the papers below satisfy the requirements listed on the AST 494/591 class web-page
(check "Tips for finding ..."). Some are too long, others too short for a ~45 min presentation.

[C] denotes approximate number of citations, dd. Spring 2008, as recorded in
    ADS. Note that this is only an indication of the number of citations, and
    that it should be weighted by the number of professional astronomers that
    existed world-wide at the time (i.e., 50 citations for a 1940s paper 
    equals 500 citations or more for a 1990s paper).

--> indicates papers already discussed or scheduled for discussion in
