true; but with three bullet holes in his visor, no shields and limited oxygen supply in his armor, he isn't going to last very long without any means of propulsion.
remember newton's law: an object in motion, stays in motion, until an object of equal force disrupts its motion.
so if chief is adrift in space, he won't be able to move much faster than a crawl if that's the speed he was going at when his half of the dawn 'sploded. unless, he comes across wreckage, and uses that as a impromptu booster.
Hmm gues you are right! In my head this happened when Chief was chilling in an pelican when suddenly they got suprised by a Covie dropship ( Halo CE somewhere in that timeline ) The Autumn is crashed and there are not a lot of pelicans out there so yeah like you said he is kinda lost XD
oh god, lost in space. even a spartan would be terrified of that. because if you have nothing to propel you anywhere, it's just a waiting game until your oxygen runs out, and you suffocate to death. terrible way to go, but hey, the covenant are evil fuckers.
tell me about it. i would go through the seven stages of death (denial, bargaining, acceptance, etc.) before i died, for sure. plus there's also space debris you have to watch out for, and i don't know about you, but suffocating seems a lot tamer a fate than getting sliced in half by a shorn off piece of metal from a pelican wing. that would be quicker, sure, but you'd be experiencing that pain for the rest of eternity. forced to relive it over, and over again. i'd rather suffocate. at least then you get to stay whole.
yep, stupid aliens. just goes to show religion destroys all. hell it almost destroyed humanity when the flood was released. the only reason it didn't was because of chief, and even then, he had alot of trouble with it. no chief, we'd all be screwed up the bum with a hot iron rod.
