Max is a spacefiller that was found by Tim Coe in October 1995 that fills the plane with zebra stripes. In terms of its 187 cells, it is tied with spacefiller 2 as the smallest known spacefiller, and in terms of its 27×27 bounding box it wins outright.
Alternatively, the term Max may be used to describe whatever the smallest-known spacefiller is at the current time. The term represents the fact that the growth rate is the fastest possible of any pattern in Conway's Game of Life.
