Important research papers published

As a regular reader of the latest publications broadcast on the ArXiv astrophysics list, I was especially interested in several of today’s papers, which I suspect are ground-breaking:

 The Existential Threat of Future Exoplanet Discoveries

 Pandemic Dark Matter

 Using Artificial Intelligence to Shed Light on the Star of Biscuits: The Jaffa Cake

 Science Spoofs, Physics Pranks and Astronomical Antics

 The first is published in that highly cited journal, Acta Prima Aprilia

 There are quite a few other classics listed (including one referring to Taylor Swift songs)

There’s been some splendid

There’s been some splendid papers on time travel- all of which demonstrate some truly creative misunderstandings of general relativity!

The Existential threat...

Unless I have got hold of the wrong end of the stick surely the threat is unchanged. The majority of the planets have been there for a long time but its just that we are discovering more of them.

Oops

Guess it was just a joke looking at the other papers - going for a lie down.
