64P2H1V0 is an unnamed orthogonal c/2 spaceship discovered, along with several other period 2 spaceships, by Dean Hickerson on July 28, 1989. Although Hickerson does not remember which specific spaceship was discovered first, this was among the earliest.^{[1]} In terms of its 64 cells, it is the smallest period 2 spaceship,^{[2]} although there are several higherperiod c/2 spaceships that are smaller.
