Loafer is a c/7 orthogonal spaceship found by Josh Ball on February 17, 2013. Its name refers to its slow speed and loaf-pushing behaviour. Adam P. Goucher found an 18-glider synthesis for this spaceship on the day of its discovery, and Matthias Merzenich reduced this to 8 gliders the following day. Two loafer guns were built on February 19th of the same year.
