Subject: Radiation from black holes, fundamental constants, multi-messengers at the solar mass scale: tidbits from the Astro2020 White Papers

White papers over the last year were submitted by the community to
provide their hopes and dreams for the next decade. I will briefly
review an eclectic selection of them, including electromagnetic
signatures from newly forming massive black holes, spectral probes of
the cosmic evolution of fundamental constants, predictions for
multi-messenger signatures of merging solar mass black holes, and other
interesting tidbits yet to be identified.

The weekly calendar is also available via subscription to the physics-announce mailing list, and by RSS feed.
