Tim Coe has found a symmetrical spaceship with a new speed, 3c/7 (left, below) after a series of searches that took a total of "one or two months". At 29 cells wide, it is the minimum width odd symmetric spaceship -- an exhaustive width 27 search was run some time ago by Paul Tooke. The author seems to have officially chosen a name of "Spaghetti Monster" for the new 3c/7 spaceship.

Matthias Merzenich has pointed out that two of these spaceships can support a known 3c/7 wave (right, below).

#C [[ AUTOFIT AUTOSTART GPS 4 ]]

This is the twenty-second spaceship velocity constructed in Conway's Life -- counting each of the four infinite families of spaceships (Gemini, HBK, Demonoid, Caterloopillar) as one velocity each.
