Tim Coe is a Life enthusiast who is most well-known for the various spaceships that he has discovered. He found the snail, which was the first c/5 spaceship to be discovered (and was the slowest known spaceship at the time of its discovery). He also discovered 46P4H1V0, which is currently the smallest-known c/4 orthogonal spaceship, and spaghetti monster, the smallest 3c/7 orthogonal spaceship. His other spaceship discoveries include the swan, 60P5H2V0, and a period-16 puffer engine with an easily ignitable exhaust that facilitates construction of many puffers.
