Lightweight Spaceship (xq4_6frc)

x = 1, y = 1, rule = B3/S23

There is currently no description assigned to this pattern.

This pattern is a spaceship.
This pattern is periodic with period 4.
This pattern runs in standard life (b3s23).
The population fluctuates between 9 and 12.
This evolutionary sequence works in multiple rules, from b3aijs2eik3aijnr through to b2kn345-a67e8s1e234-aw5-jy6-kn78.

In b3s23-ijn4a, this is not the same spaceship as in b3s23... :P

In case it's not clear, there's only one canonical apgcode -- as it does for every oscillator and spaceship, apgsearch tries all 16 possibilities and picks this one (xq4_6frc) because it comes first in the sorted list.

There are actually 16 distinct apgcodes for this spaceship, because it has a mod of 2 and symmetry of C1.

8/(symmetry order) * (mod) = (number of apgcodes).

Guy discovered the Glider in 1970 while researching the R-Pentonimo. The LWSpaceship was discovered when it was seen seemingly spinning like a turbine as it moved horizonatlly (not diagonally) across the screen in an agar. The pattern was stopped before it could hit something -and be destroyed. Life collisions always destroy or change the colliders.

The Glider is not as common as the block, beehive, blinker,boat.... ,but the LW-,MW- and HW-Spaceship, are rare in increasingly so order.

Bug: in rule b2i34cik6c7s23-a4cikn6c7, this is not a lwss but a very similar spaceship - please correct.

Note: there are 8 distinct apgcodes for this spaceship. For instance, another working apgcode is xq4_5889e.

This is also glider 1062 on David Eppstein's glider page.
