Period-45 glider gun is a true period 45 gun discovered by Matthias Merzenich in 2010, with improvements by Adam P. Goucher and Dave Greene.[1]. It consists of an object hassled by pentadecathlons.

A further improvement by Tanner Jacobi in 2015, replacing three of the pentadecathlons with custom still-lifes, is given on the right.[2]
