    That is actually the ONLY known means of altering speed and direction in space. How did you THINK a rocket engine works?

    See (for example): rockets

    which "use recoil force in space to propel forward".

    Your question makes no sense. Maybe you should ask this question in whatever your native language is. Yahoo has Answers pages in numerous languages, so post this question to the one that is in your native language so that you can convey it comprehendibly. By the way, "forward" is a relative term that your use of "recoil force" and "in space" fail to relate.

    or are you just another anon troll?
