Pulsars and Joy Division

I just read a fun little article about the origin of the image on Joy Divisions cover for the album Unknown Pleasures. Apparently its the pulses from the first discovered pulsar. How neat!


Go read the article, it is quite fun to see how the auther tried to track down the image and figure out whether or not it was copyrighted (because it all started out with him wanting to use it for something else).
