but on take off, you are often 90 or even 180 degrees off course.
In orbit you are off by 45.
As you launch outward in to the void, you may be off by 5.
Or you may end up being off again by 45 as you use the moon's gravity to slingshot you toward Mars at a higher speed.
And It is not until the very end of your conscious action where 95% of the journey happens, and your perfect trajectory is dialed in.
