Expert Answer:

A spaceship has inbuilt thrusters that are fired in particular directions which enables it to either accelerate, decelerate or change direction.
The thrusters run on fuel and hence they are fired only when such manouvers are to be performed.
If the thrusters are fired backwards, then the spaceship accelerates.
If they are fired forwards, then the spaceship will decelerate, and if they are fired sideways then the spaceship will change direction.
