In science:

An amusing equivalent form for the case m = 2 is that the number of such permutations is also the number of ways of placing n mutually non-attacking krooks on an n × n chessboard. A krook is a piece which can move either like a king, or a rook in chess.
The enumeration of simple permutations
It travels as a bishop in chess and in four moves it is shifted one cell forward and down and its velocity is v = 1/4.
The velocity translation in the game of "Life"
No ob ject of the game of Life can move faster than a chess king – one square per one move.
The velocity translation in the game of "Life"
The spaceships of the game of Life have direct resemblance with chess pawns because they move at a discrete speed and strictly linear (straight or diagonal) motion.
The velocity translation in the game of "Life"
But it is not so in the light of the chess rules because the pawns do not move simultaneously : the black pawn turns to move when the white pawn stays at rest.
