Newshuttle is a period 28 pre-pulsar shuttle oscillator discovered by David Buckingham in 1973,[1][2] being the first oscillator of that period to be found. It was also the fourth shuttle oscillator to be found, after the queen bee shuttle, the twin bees shuttle, and a variation of eureka stabilized by pentadecathlons and queen bees. This was the only known period 28 oscillator until the discovery of smaller newshuttle in 1980.
