Long-time lurker, first-time poster here...
Every week (most) astrophysics papers (amongst other fields) go up as pre-prints in a site called arXiv, which enables the community to see who is doing what and which topics are hot now, etc. etc. There's no better way to check that one's understood a paper than to explain it to a non-specialist audience. So I thought I would take a small collection (not more than half-a-dozen) of the hundred-plus papers which appear in General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology and Cosmology and Nongalactic Astrophysics and summarize them in a paragraph for a non-astrophysics audience. Is this the sort of thing in which [community profile] science would be interested?

Edit: Apologies for the earlier HTML fail...

This is a GREAT idea! Can this catch on as a thing for the community? Because I'd love to read summaries for a nonspecialist from all sorts of science fields.
