p29 pre-pulsar shuttle (or prime[citation needed]) is a period 29 shuttle oscillator discovered by David Buckingham on August 2, 1980,[1] making it the first oscillator of that period to be found. In terms of its 54 cells it is the smallest known period 29 oscillator.[2] The oscillator works by combining the 15-generation, two-tub pre-pulsar shuttle mechanism used in Eureka with a 14-generation pre-pulsar shuttle mechanism. Hassling pre-pulsars in this way was the only known way of constructing period 29 oscillators until the discovery of the p29 traffic-farm hassler, and some variations of this shuttle are shown below. In September 1994 Bill Gosper found that two copies of pre-pulsar shuttle 29 could be used to hassle a pentadecathlon. Gosper used it to construct the p58 toadsucker.

A 42-glider synthesis is known for a variant of this oscillator, 56P29, which is shown below.[3]
