The GRAVMAX Negative Gravioli Detector displays gravity in meters per second squared when right clicked.


This instrument shows the gravity in your current sphere of influence to 4 significant figures. This can be used with altitude to estimate the mass of the nearest celestial body or to measure it's surface gravity. Alternatively, it can be used with the accelerometer and altitude to make landing estimates.

While active, the gravimeter drains 0.0075 electric charge per second (27 E/hr).

The detector does not function in high orbits depending on the orbited body.
