## Contents

## Spaceships

The first c/5 diagonal spaceship to be discovered was 295P5H1V1 and was found by Jason Summers on November 22, 2000.^{[1]} No other spaceships of this speed were discovered until January 8, 2005, when Jason summers found the much smaller 86P5H1V1. In July 2006 Nicolay Beluchenko discovered three new c/5 diagonal spaceships, including the asymmetric 67P5H1V1.^{[2]} The smallest known c/5 diagonal spaceship, 58P5H1V1, was discovered by Matthias Merzenich on September 5, 2010.

## Puffers

The first c/5 diagonal puffer was built by Matthias Merzenich on September 5, 2010. It consists of four copies of 58P5H1V1 continually hassling a glider, leaving debris behind at a period of 1450.
