Did you know...

 ... that glider constructions for the B29, X66, halfX66 with HWSS, Pushalong 1, 25P3H1V0.2, 30P5H2V0, 30P4H2V0.4, a pufferfish spaceship, and the weekender were discovered in 2015  after fifteen years of intermittent efforts in the case of the weekender?
 ... that since 2014, more new spaceship syntheses have been completed than were found in all the years between 1970 and 2013?
 ... that as of 26 July 2015 there are 161 different still lifes known to be constructible by colliding four gliders, but it is not known if the list is complete?
 ... that in 2014 a new natural infinite growth pattern was discovered, starting from a symmetric random starting configuration?
 ... that the first selfconstructing Conway's Life pattern was built in 2010?
 ... that the first glider synthesis for a c/3 spaceship was completed in 2014?
 ... that the first "macrospaceship" gun (a Gemini spaceship gun) was constructed in 2010, followed by the HBK gun in January 2015?
 ... that the waterbear is the single known highspeed oblique spaceship, many orders of magnitude faster than Gemini spaceships and halfbaked knightships?
 ... that there are no known direct reflectors for lightspeed wire signals, or for signals in 2c/3 wires?
 ... that 24 tencell patterns exhibit infinite growth, with 17 unique pattern types, but that it has been proven that no ninecell pattern exhibits infinite growth?
