Tanner's p46 is a period 46 oscillator that was found by Tanner Jacobi on October 20, 2017[1] involving a pi running a small conduit.


Mark Niemiec posted a trivial 19-glider synthesis of Tanner's p46 two hours after its discovery.


David Bell used Tanner's p46 and a twin bees shuttle to build a period 46 glider gun:

There are also various other guns that can be constructed by combining two of the oscillators themselves, one of which produces middleweight spaceships without any gliders required.
