Welcome to the J-2X Doghouse: Twist and Shout...and Steering

- Put a little kid into the driver's seat of a car and what's the first thing they do? They grab the steering wheel and twist. Twisting the steering wheel back and forth is just about the most intuitive, intrinsic sense of "driving" I can imagine. Now think of a launch vehicle blasting off the pad. Other than for some extreme, emergency conditions, there is nothing that stands in for the steering wheel on a launch vehicle during ascent. Without a steering wheel, per se, how does steering happen?
