This week's featured article

Parallel half-baked knightship or Parallel HBK is a knightship based on the well-known half-bakery reaction with a glider, and an improvement over the original half-baked knightship. There are several significant differences in design between the original half-baked knightship and Chris Cain's smaller version. The slow-salvo constructions are done serially in Goucher's design, and an extra glider is used to suppress the salvo that triggers the half-bakery trails.

On January 3, 2015 Chris Cain built a HBK gun, that can run in Golly in reasonable time.

The gun's design implies an easy synthesis with 57,286 gliders, though this is considerably larger than an earlier 38,380-glider synthesis by Michael Simkin.
