Highlife oddity

The B-heptomino is one of few patterns to take longer to stabilize in HighLife. With a lifetime of 228 generations, it beats the R-pentomino(dies out in 9 generations) and the Pi heptomino(stabilizes in 102 generations). How does HighLife make this unique heptomino live longer? And how does HighLife make this pattern end up with a higher population(29 vs.28) than in Life without emitting a glider at all? -wwei23 9:58 PM 9/23/2015 NY time

"Failed spaceship"

"It is considered a failed spaceship, but can be used to make a puffer 2."

What is a failed spaceship, and who specifically considers the B-heptomino to be one? Apple Bottom (talk) 21:29, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Types of spaceships#Standard spaceship: "Many failed standard spaceships like the overweight spaceship and the b-heptomino"
Pretty much anything that displays ship-like behaviour, but dies out or becomes something else - AwesoMan3000 (talk) 22:45, 10 July 2016 (UTC)
