49768M is a methuselah with a lifespan of 49768 generations, discovered by Rob Liston on April 21, 2020, using apgsearch.[1] On April 24, Goldtiger997 found a variant of this methuselah which lasts one generation longer while still fitting within the same bounding box, which is currently the longest-lasting known non-infinitely-growing[note 1] methuselah within a 16×16 square.[5] Both of these surpass 47575M which was discovered in February 2019.

Stable pattern

The stable pattern that results from 49768M (excluding 97 escaping gliders) has 3848 cells and consists of 317 blocks, 261 blinkers (including 16 traffic lights and two interchanges), 145 beehives (including three honey farms), 59 boats, 52 loaves, 15 tubs, 12 ponds, 11 ships, two toads, one barge, and one long boat.

Notes

  1. An infinitely growing soup which "goes boring" after 133100 generations due to a backwards-firing stream of gliders was found by Rob Liston on May 12, 2019;[2] however, this is often not counted as a methuselah.[3] Another soup, based on a crystal reaction, was found by Liston on May 29, 2020 lasting 10,514,926 generations.[4]
