A reburnable fuse is a a very rare type of fuse whose output is identical to its input, possibly with some spatial and/or temporal offset; see lightspeed wire for an example. Reburnable fuses are used primarily in the construction of fixed-speed self-supporting macro-spaceships, where the speed of the fuse's burning reaction becomes the speed of the spaceship. Examples include the Caterpillar, Centipede, and waterbear.
