A ship is an instance of an Urbit computer that is a peer on the Arvo network.

A ship can be one of five classes:

  • comets, disposable identities.
  • moons, connected devices subordinated to a ship.
  • planets, individual users.
  • stars, network infrastructure nodes.
  • galaxy, also network infrastructure nodes.

To be able to use the Arvo network, planets, stars, and galaxies must be combined with an Azimuth-based Urbit identity in the form of a keyfile.
