Blinker ship 1 is a blinker ship that was created by Paul Schick based on his Schick engine. The front part is a period 12 blinker puffer that and moves at c/2 and leaves a new blinker once every six cells, while the back part is period 26 blinker fuse that moves at 6c/13. Every 156 generations 13 blinkers are created and 12 are destroyed, so the wick becomes one blinker longer.
