Pi orbital is a period-168 oscillator that was found by Noam Elkies on August 22, 1995.[1] It works by using four crowns and four blocks to turn a pi heptomino ninety degrees every 42 generations. A second pi heptomino can be inserted to reduce the period to 84. On March 26, 2009 Nicolay Beluchenko found a relatively small period 12 sparker that could replace the crowns. On April 6, 2010 Matthias Merzenich discovered the Blocked p4-4 period 4 oscillator that also supports the oscillator.
