LifetimeOrbitPropagatorDragCoefficient Property

Gets or sets the coefficient of drag associated with the aerodynamic profile of the satellite. The propagator takes into account the ScalarAtmosphericDensity and DragCrossSectionalArea and the drag coefficient provides a proportional measure of how much the body is affected by atmospheric drag. This value must not be negative and is usually in the range between 2.0 and 2.2.
