Hi all, Question: how does the space shuttle roll right cater it launches? If you watch the takeoff it rolls shortly after take off, I think resulting in the shuttle exiting tht atmosphere upside down. So how does it initiate that first roll? Is it a function if the wings (ailerons?) Also why does it enter upside down? My guess is that for visibility its better to see the earth and allow for communications than being bottom to earth, but why not flip once in orbit?
