2c/7 orthogonal is a speed that is equivalent to two sevenths of the speed of light.
The first 2c/7 spaceship discovered was the weekender, which was found by David Eppstein on January 12, 2000 using his search program, gfind. On April 27, 2000, Stephen Silver discovered a tagalong that can be pulled by two weekenders. Attaching these tagalongs to weekenders is currently the only known method of constructing other 2c/7 spaceships, besides building self-sustaining loops of weekender conduits (see Rakes).
On December 26, 2013, Ivan Fomichev built a period-8974 2c/7 puffer by perturbing a lightweight spaceship with several weekenders. The next day, he built a smaller period-6622 puffer after Hartmut Holzwart pointed out a simpler design Jason Summers used in his 2c/5 puffer.
