There's no 'down' in space.
Beat me to it, dang it!
Well, as I understand it "Upwards and "downwards" exist only in gravitational fields near large objects in space. So if taking that into consideration then there is up and down near the surface of Earth, and up and down near the surface of the Sun but, in general, no upwards or downwards in interplanetary or interstellar space.
damn these quick fingers huh!
Where would they fall?
I'd have a panick attack and mostly like die
Lol! I'm serious
Not a lot really; we don`t know how many are already dead. I am assuming that you know that we receive the light from a dead planet. It takes `light years` to reach us so how many shining stars are dead ?
