Period-40 glider gun is a true period-40 glider gun discovered by Adam P. Goucher in 2013 and improved by Matthias Merzenich[1].

A chain of honey farm precursors is hassled by figure eights and period-5 oscillators to produce 11 streams of gliders. One stream is the output, 4 are reflected to stabilize the ends of the honey farm chain, and the other 6 are absorbed by eater 1s.
