The “noise” depicted on the cover of the June issue of E&S magazine is a screenshot from a video representation of Richard Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries,” which is played at ear-splitting volume at 7 a.m. on the dot every morning during finals week at Caltech. The image seen above was created for E&S by motion-graphics designer Ryan Luse. But that’s not all it is. In keeping with the issue’s theme—noise, and finding the signal within the noise—we’ve hidden a signal on the cover image as well. It is, appropriately enough, the word noise. Can you find it? Here’s a hint: Check out the light-colored “spikes.”*
