The excessive time-resolution radio sky represents unexplored astronomical territory. This thesis offers a learn of the temporary radio sky, focussing on millisecond scales. As such, the paintings is worried basically with neutron stars. particularly this examine concentrates on a lately pointed out crew of neutron stars, referred to as RRATs, which express radio bursts each jiffy to each few hours. After analysing neutron megastar birthrates, a re-analysis of the Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey is defined which has ended in the invention of nineteen new brief radio resources. of those, 12 were visible to copy and a followup crusade of observations has been undertaken. those experiences have enormously elevated our wisdom of the rotational houses of RRATs and permit us to finish that they're pulsars with severe nulling and/or pulse-to-pulse modulation. even though the evolution of neutron stars post-supernova isn't but understood, it appears RRATs healthy into the rising photograph within which pulsar magnetospheres change among strong configurations.
