More Glider Constructions
Mark Niemiec has found a way to construct a Period 29 Pre-Pulsar Shuttle Oscillator. His original construction created the [13.9] pair using a reactions that started with Blinkers (also shown here), but I have subsititued Dean Hickerson's recently discovered 5 Glider construction. Fortunately, the two objects are far enough apart and located such that none of the incoming Gliders for the second interferes with the first. This reduces the number of needed gliders from 34 to 28.
He also found a method of converting a Period 3 Mold [12P3.1] into a Period 5 Oscillator rotor stabilized by a variety of Stable Objects. Shown here are [17P5.1] using an Aircraft Carrier [6.4], [18P5.2] using a Fishhook Eater [7.3], and [19P5.1] using a Shillelagh [8.2].
