I get it that there are no close cousins or small tagalongs?

Extrementhusiast, any hopes for a p210 gun based on this?

No, I think we may have to wait another 14 years for that.

Tom and I are intending to write a paper on the subject, and I'll post a (less technical) cp4space article describing the discovery and the ideas involved -- ideally could you please wait until then before 'going public'?

Well, it's already been posted on Reddit, and anyone who sees this website can find out about it anyway, so it's basically already gone public.
Well I already posted a link to HN but it didn't take off. I think a nontechnical article is needed for people to appreciate the brilliance.calcyman wrote:I mean prior to posting on Hacker News, Slashdot, and the like.

After that the period might be a bit too high.
Although any new elementary spaceship speed is a good discovery, those aren't as interesting to me because we already know that ships can travel at those speeds (with much higher periods).77topaz wrote:Macbi wrote:I'd say the new most wanted speed is (3,1)c/8, since it's the simplest speed where it isn't know if it is achievable.

There's a couple more possible knightship speeds in that window, though, namely (2,1)c/7, (2,1)c/8, (3,1)c/9, (2,1)c/9, (3,1)c/10 and (2,1)c/10. We could easily exhaust the Knights of the Round Table before we exhaust our searching technology.

Three excess gliders, three pieces of debris to clear. Seems simple enough.
