The centipede is the smallest known 31c/240 spaceship. It was discovered by Chris Cain later on the same day as the shield bug[1] and actually reuses most of its circuitry despite of having quite different shape. Its smaller size is due to a more compact front-end that was built by Cain a day earlier.
