Moose antlers (or simply antlers, or moose) is a 15-cell still life. It can eat gliders like an eater 1.


Moose antlers is the thirty-third most common still life in Achim Flammenkamp's census, being less common than cis-mirrored bun but more common than block on table.[1] It is also the forty-third most common object Adam P. Goucher's Catagolue.[2] It is the most common 15-bit still life, being about 7 times more common than the cis-boat on dock.

Glider synthesis

All strict still lifes with a population of 20 or fewer cells, as well as all oscillators and spaceships with 16 or fewer cells, are known to be glider-constructible. A glider synthesis of this object can be found in the infobox to the right.
