An onboard stabilization system keeps it oriented during flight to improve the view from the video uplink and to control landings. This youtube video shows its amazing trickery.

We are not located at the center of the universe. Which means that if universe is expanding with at least speed of light, we would not be able to see at least the half of the universe that is expanding to the other side from the center. Now, how does it approach 250+ times bigger? More beer and some additional funding will surely find an answer.
