Sidecar is an orthogonal c/2 spaceship that was found by Hartmut Holzwart in 1992. Alternatively, it may refer just to the tagalong (displayed in green) that is attached to the heavyweight spaceship. The tagalong itself can be constructed via five gliders, so the entire spaceship can be constructed via eight gliders.
Synthesis and destruction
Because a glider synthesis is known for the sidecar, a sidecar gun has been constructed. A simple method of destroying a sidecar that involves an eater 1 and a pair of killer toads is shown below.
