Loafer is a c/7 orthogonal spaceship found by Josh Ball on February 17, 2013. Its name refers to its slow speed and loafpushing behaviour. Adam P. Goucher found an 18glider synthesis for this spaceship on the day of its discovery, and Matthias Merzenich reduced this to 8 gliders the following day.^{[1]}
