    A combination of gyroscopes and jets could control it, yes. That is how space ships orientate in space where there really is no friction.

    You have already posted this question. I see this post has a poll, yet it would have been easier to go back and edit the original post you made (this one). All you have to do is go to the bottom of it when you edit and add poll. I'd delete this if I was a mod. Most probably one or admin will delete it. No offense there either , I'll just take it as not yet knowing the full potential mechanics of the forum.

    Of course you could navigate and move. Why wouldn't you? Is there anyone between 3 and 120 years of age who doubts that? Stop wasting our time.
