Consider the accuracy of an unmanned space rocket when traveling to a specific destination; it is not accomplished by staying on a predetermined path or by getting back on that path if it strays off course. No effort is made to return the rocket to its original path, but instead a control center determines “where is it now, what is its current velocity?” Corrections are made to direct the rocket on its new path and the process is repeated multiple times over on its way to its destination.
