Kok's galaxy (xp8_4b23021eaz57840c4d2)

x = 1, y = 1, rule = B3/S23
This pattern is an oscillator.
This pattern is periodic with period 8.
This pattern runs in standard life (b3s23).
The population fluctuates between 28 and 64.
This evolutionary sequence works in multiple rules, from b3-ys23-einy through to b2i34kqt5acekn6-k7s234cekrtwy5-ijnq6eik7c8.

I think the Hitchhiker badge may only consider C1 soups.

There is a badge known as "Hitchhiker" which required finding Kok's galaxy in a soup. (very easy to find with C4_1 symmetry) However, it seems that the badge can no longer be obtained since March 2018.

Unlike the 2015-9-10 comment, this is NOT nonsense.

KOK'S GALAXY is useful as a sparker, inducting inert material into oscillating. At one point, when it looks like a spiral galaxy, 4 sparks fly out that cause induction in certain objects, catalytically.
