Do you remember the band Joy Division? The band 1979 album cover, Unknown Pleasures had a stacked plot of radio signals from a pulsar. The cover image became popular but for most people mysterious where it came from. In the video the cover designer Peter Saville explains it is a frequency of the signal of the first pulsar observed. Astronomers Bell Burnell and Antony Hewish picked up the signal on November 28, 1967 with a ray of telescopes, and the cover designed by Saville is linked to the figure in The Cambridge Encyclopaedia of Astronomy (1977 edition).
Nowadays its a popular iconic image with endless interpretations in fashion, shoes, tattoos, prints and even phone cases. Check out my favorite items with the mysterious pulsar they have products for men and women.
