I really like this automaton! It's like a jellyfish.
Yonatan Zunger originally shared to Today I Learned::
Math question which is probably obvious to someone out there:

Does every cellular automaton exhibit periodic solutions? (i.e., for any cellular automaton, does there exist at least one configuration A and positive integer p such that for any natural number n, A(np) = A(0)?) Failing that, does every cellular automaton at least have "spaceships?" (i.e., configurations periodic up to translation)

(This is really "today I haven't yet learned," because while I feel like I should know the answer off the top of my head, I really don't)
