Space battle debris

Would there ever be a debris field after a space battle? Would an exploding ship simply blowout in a rough sphere, never stopping until it hits something?

In deep space, I don’t think so. But in a battle over a planet, it’d get pulled back and be a lot of junk orbiting the planet.

Millions of years ago, a space battle. A large chunk of the hull drops to a far away planet with pre-spaceflight people. :slight_smile:
