The panel is useful for doing the following:
- Changing the value of mass ratio mu,
which is used by the Orbit Computation and Visualization module
- Performing integration using these initial conditions using one of DsTool's
built-in integrators rather than the Fehlberg 7-8 integrator specifically implemented in the Orbit
- To learn about the features of the initial conditions and system parameters panel,
