These are the smallest (in terms of bits) one cell thick patterns to emit a glider, lightweight (LWSS), middleweight (MWSS) and heavyweight (HWSS) spaceship.

## Life Digits (2)

Posted in restricted patterns on July 9, 2009 by DIVVS·IVLIVSUsing the standard ‘life digits‘ these are the smallest numbers that can produce infinite growth for each base from 2 to 10:

Base 02: 16-digits: 0011001000100011

Base 03: 11-digits: 21011121122

Base 04: 10-digits: 0023321310

Base 05: 08-digits: 40101123

Base 06: 07-digits: 0253033

Base 07: 07-digits: 0051165

Base 08: 07-digits: 140732

Base 09: 07-digits: 140732

Base 10: 06-digits: 140732

Surprise! Dean Hickerson thought that the smallest number that produces infinite population growth was 154299. 😉
