### Re: Small Spaceship Syntheses

I reduced the 56P6H1V0 synthesis down to 296 gliders. The reduction was finding a way of replacing the long canoes (which used to be present on either side of the base still-life) with very long pythons. I think the cleanup can be reduced: x = 7480, y = 94, rule = B3/S23 5825bo$5824bo$5824b3o5$6610b...

Great discovery! Based on that here's a periodic G-to-2G.
