The power of a name

Huge energies released at distant sources appear only faintly at our radio antennas. At the source, an FRB could release as much energy in a millisecond than the sun releases in 80 years. At our antennas, because of its great distance (billions of light years), the same FRB could appear to us a thousand times weaker than a cell phone on the moon.
