Slow puffer 2 is a puffer that was found by David Bell. It consists of a blinker puffer 1 with a p18 "house" blinker fuse attached to the back of it to suppress the blinkers and two MWSS's to give rebirth to said fuse (and leave the bi-blocks in the process). Its name comes from the fact that it creates debris very slowly, only creating a single bi-block every 240 generations.


A flotilla of 6 assorted spaceships can turn the bi-blocks produced by this puffer into gliders, completing a period 240 forward rake.
