Inspired by the cover of the Joy Division album Unknown Pleasures, this shows 86 individual pulses (about 61 seconds worth of data) of the pulsar B0329+54 observed on August 29, 2014 with the NRAO/Skynet 20m telescope.

This pulsar rotates every 0.71 seconds, and is roughly 3500 light-years away in the constellation Camelopardalis.

The 3D printed pulsar model is from Dawn Erb

How I Designed This

I used the stl_tools package to convert the folded pulsar data into a 3D model. It was printed with assistance from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Rapid Prototyping Lab.

Nice! I wrote some similar code to turn one of our LOFAR discoveries - a nuller - into plastic, but the signal-to-noise wasn't nearly as good (and the slices ended up too thin). I did prefer even slices to interpolation for single-pulse data. I'd be happy to try my code out on this data, if you're interested.

Downloading for Joy Division

i been waiting for a guide to come and PRINT THIS IN 3D

love you forever

hi, is there a way to convert the WOW signal of 1977?

God I love this stuff. The possibilities are endless plus Joy Division were a big part fo my teenage years.
