If I shoot some free electrons detached from any atom in space from a space station what happens to the electrons? I know around the atom's nucleus electron creates cloud like movement having various energy levels. But what type of movement , cloud and energy the electron holds in absence of any atom nucleus in space ? Does it move like EM wave or does it emits photons which move as EM wave? What about energy movement of electron from/to upper/lower energy level which is required to emit photons ? What may be the future fate of these electrons? I was observing the movement of my ceiling fan which has 3 blades. Although I know it has three blades while rotating its not possible to know. Even if it has only one blade when rotating very fast we cannot guess the blade qty. It may be slightly analogy with electron cloud. When I hit the fan with something strongly only then I have some info about its nature, only then I know exact position of the blade. Else the single blade is all over the circle area at the same time. Not correct. Because of the limitation of our eyes which can't differentiate object if shown movement 10 frames in a second the fan seemed like a round plate. . See the video of CD shattering recorded in slow motion by slow mo guys: Although the CD is rotating at very high speed using speedy camera they captured CD as like it is not rotating (at 4:44 moment ). For electron we need both high speed camera and electron microscope. Then we may view the electron when in still. I know its not possible and is quantum mechanically wrong but I like to dream to view electron in such still state as like the CD in near or distant future.
