Year of discovery 2021

The sprayer[note 1] is a (2,1)c/6 spaceship found by Adam P. Goucher on May 9, 2021 using his ikpx2 search program.[1] It is a completion of a front end found by Dylan Chen in January 2021 initially using LSSS and extended using ikpx2.[2][3]

Tagalongs

The sprayer's namesake heavyweight spark can be used to support another sprayer with its back third cut off, a wandering minstrel (which can pull a connecting minstrel),[4] or a pi minstrel.[5] The sprayer's back sparks can be used to pull a traffic light while making it leave blocks, resulting in a period-12 puffer.[6] A dot spark from an adjacent heavyweight[7] or lightweight[8] minstrel (supported by a Sir Robin) can turn the block predecessors into gliders, resulting in a backrake.

Notes

  1. referring to its powerful heavyweight spark at the frontend
