Imagine we are in deep space in a space ship,there is nothing around us.In this situation can the ship increase its velocity or come to rest using thrusters .If so, how? Because there should be something there so that it would apply an opposite force to the force of the thrusters and make it go faster or stop it according to newton's third law.i mean i see space ships going crazy in sci fi movies.could they do that?
