"Barge" may also refer to a particular c/3 extensible spaceship that can be found at Barge (spaceship).

The barge is a common 6-cell still life discovered by the JHC group in 1970.[1]


Barge is the tenth most common still life in Achim Flammenkamp's census, being less common than ship-tie but more common than bi-loaf 1.[2] It is also the fourteenth most common object on Adam P. Goucher's Catagolue.[3]
