If you throw an item like a bottle in outerspace, does it keep on going
or does it stop when it's out of thrust?
Your question suggests that you need to learn some basic physics. When
you flip a coin straight up into the air, does it come back down because
it runs out of thrust? If your answer is "yes", then tell us where is
the rocket engine that was providing the thrust. Also, why doesn't the
moon fall into the earth?
