The gravity constant of the CelestialObject. This value is used for propagation of a Spacecraft with a point mass gravitational model. When a Spacecraft is propagated using a gravitational potential field file, the Mu (Gravity Constant) specified in the file is used for propagation of that Spacecraft.

 

Mu = GM (in km^3/s^2), where: G = 6.67259x10^-20 km^3/(kg*sec^2), M = mass (kg).
