Aircraft carrier (or simply carrier) is a still life with 6 cells, and the smallest still life that has more than one island.


Aircraft carrier is the fifteenth most common still life in Achim Flammenkamp's census, being less common than long barge but more common than paperclip.[1] It is also the twentieth most common object on Adam P. Goucher's Catagolue. It is the fourth most common (second rarest) 6-bit still life, being less common than the barge but nearly four times as common as the snake.[2]
