Why does a canon ball slow down as it travels?

A cannon ball slows down as it travels because of Newtons third law of motion.This law states that with every reaction there is an equal and opposite reaction.As a cannon ball is launched air is hitting and gravity is pulling it down, causing the ball to slow down and eventually fall.If you where in space and you threw somthing, it would never stop moving unless there is an force that acts on it. On earth there is always a force acting on different objects.
