The first spaceship is one of the small edge-repair spaceships discovered by David Bell in 1992. The second ship is known and can be found in Stephen Silver's 'ships' collection (available here). Small period-3 spaceships are unlikely to be new at this point. As I mentioned in this post, c/3 components can usually be searched for directly when needed. There are, however, a number of desired p3 ships that have not yet been found, such as a ship that converts a forward *WSS into a forward glider quickly enough that it could be used to make relatively low-period engineless rakes.

The following external links give a fairly comprehensive overview of current c/3 technology:
  • Speed c/3 Technology in Conway's Life - An article by David Bell describing the extent of c/3 technology in 1999.
  • Archive of c/3 ships and puffers in Life - A collection of c/3 technology compiled by David Bell (last updated Dec. 20, 2002).
  • ships collection - A collection compiled by Stephen Silver (mentioned above) containing the smallest known ships (in terms of minimum population) for small periods (last updated Jan. 12, 2004).
  • Lots of spaceships - A collection of raw search output from gfind for low-period spaceships (includes a c/3 collection). The collection is unsorted and contains several duplicates.
  • jslife collection - A collection of interesting life patterns compiled by Jason Summers. The collection contains some c/3 technology (under 'velocity-c3').
  • Some new spaceships - A topic in the forums containing a number of new period-6 c/3 ships by Josh Ball (first post) and myself (several subsequent posts).
Here are a few other recent advances in c/3 technology:
