No, this pattern is not the first to exhibit this behaviour. Nicolay Beluchenko created one in August 2003. Calcyman 11:13, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

I believe this is the pattern Calcyman is referring to:
x = 58, y = 123, rule = B3/S23

It can be found in Jason Summers' jslife pattern collection under interactions. I have added a questionable notability tag to this page because, as stated, it is not the first known pattern to exhibit this property. I think for an obliquely-growing spaceship to achieve notability, it must not be based on a rake (such as an oblique ant-stretcher).
