A Bussard Ramjet is a fusion reaction drive that uses electromagnetic fields to funnel hydrogen into a reactor, where the energy released by the fusion is used as propellant for locomotion. Whilst the technology is in use in the Known Space stories, the actual technology of this name is theoretical.
