      Yeah it would form a perfectly round spit ball (because there is no gravity) and float away continuing forever on its magically journey. Looking for other spit ball to settle down with and raise a family of little spit balls.

      I think if you spit in space, the ball of spit would boil away and be an icy cloud of water vapor floating out there…
