							The correct option is (D) keep moving forever at the same speed.
Newton’s first law states that, without any external force, if a body is at rest, it will remain at rest and if the body is moving with constant velocity, it will continue to do so.
Since here there is no external force present, therefore the spacecraft will keep moving forever at the same speed.
Thus from the above observation we conclude that, option (D) is correct.
