c/8 orthogonal is an orthogonal speed that is equivalent to one eighth of the speed of light.

Spaceships

Using caterloopillar technology, Michael Simkin constructed a c/8 orthogonal ship on April 9, 2016.[1] No other spaceship types of this speed are currently known.

Puffers

Caterloopillar technology can be used to yield puffers and rakes.[2]
