Andrew J. Wade is a Life enthusiast who made a name for himself when he discovered a self-replicating spaceship pattern, named Gemini, in the Game of Life between December 2009 and May 2010. This pattern is an oblique spaceship that can be made to travel at any rational slope (except for 1). He has also created a version of the game in assembly code, and the spaceship search program LSSS.


Andrew obtained a B.Sc. (Honours) in Physics from the University of Waterloo in 2001.
