Unless it's a cohesive thing, like a torpedo, it should just dissipate.pseudo sci/scifi question
So say you have a space battle going on
Ships all flying around pew pew pew-in at each other
When the pews hit a ship, they explode or are damaged
What happens when one of those pews misses?
You have a large bolt of energy lobbed from a flying space craft. Does it just keep going forever?
Would it be affected by gravity? Like pulled into permanent orbit around a moon or planet?
Or does it just dissipate over time?
Please speculate wildly
