The '''Gosper glider gun''' is the first known [[gun]], and indeed the first known finite pattern with unbounded growth, found by [[:Category:Patterns found by Bill Gosper|Bill Gosper]] in November [[:Category:Patterns found in 1970|1970]]. It consists of two [[queen bee shuttle|queen bee shuttles]] stabilized by two [[block|blocks]]. It is the smallest known gun, and, as it can be [[glider synthesis|constructed]] using only eight gliders, it has the smallest known glider synthesis of any gun. It can be destroyed completely by five gliders, as shown below.

An '''inline inverter''' is a reaction with the Gosper glider gun in which it eats an incoming [[glider]] and thus can be used to invert the presence or absence of gliders in a [[period]] 30 stream, with the output glider stream being in the same direction as the input glider stream.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.argentum.freeserve.co.uk/lex_i.htm#inlineinverter |title=Inline inverter |work=The Life Lexicon |publisher=Stephen Silver|accessdate=May 22, 2009}}</ref>
