This was actually the fifth appearance of this image in print. It was already popular in astronomy before Joy Division, as an iconic and striking visualisation of the data.

Jen Christiansen has a great blog entry on this at Scientific American.

A new installment of Jen Christiansen's blogging on the UP cover art. Great animation of a pulsar.
