Small Period 9 Oscillator?

Post by boztalay » August 9th, 2011, 3:57 am


I'm relatively new to the Game of Life, and as I've been looking around, I noticed that all of the p9 oscillators are larger, greater than 30 cells. I was curious, are there any known smaller p9 oscillators out there?

On the LifeWiki, there is an unnamed 29-cell p9 oscillator.

Why hasn't a glider exploded yet?
