* Fast radio bursts (FRBs): Bursts of radio waves that in a few milliseconds can emit as much energy as the sun in a month over all wavelengths; They are common but only a small fraction are detectable, because radio telescopes see a small fraction of the sky; 2019, Ten repeating ones known, their mechanism is unknown.
