A 3-glider collision is the collision, at right angles or head-on, of three gliders. The gliders can react with each other in many different ways; as of March 2018, efforts to exhaustively enumerate 3-glider collisions are ongoing.
3-glider collisions are useful in creating larger glider syntheses, and multiple scripts exist to search through a database of them.
