I am a learner in this field. I have a doubt after watching movie "Gravity". In that movie, an explosion occurs in a spacecraft and the particles of that vehicle move so faster than a bullet, (as mentioned by George in that movie) from a very long distance to the spot where the astronauts (actors) crew members are.
My question is will those objects (or parts of spacecraft) stops/slow down ever?
What I think right now is they don't stop because when Sandra (actress) goes into rotations, she just doesn't stop until George (actor) helps her out.
