p18 bi-block hassler (or 43P18) is a period-18 oscillator discovered by Noam Elkies on February 20, 1995.[1] In terms of its 43 cells, it is the smallest known period 18 oscillator.[2][3] The unix on the bottom can be positioned in 2 places.

It is composed of two copies of unix that are hassling a bi-block, as shown below.

A 13-glider synthesis of the oscillator was found in August 2021.[4] A 12-glider synthesis was found in March 2023.[5][6]

Generation 14 reveals that the oscillator is made up of two copies of unix and a bi-block.
