It's a well taught course that would otherwise have proved much more difficult.

From the lesson

Gravity Gradients

The differential gravity across a rigid body is approximated to the first order to study how it disturbs both the attitude and orbital motion. The gravity gradient relative equilibria conditions are derived, whose stability is analyzed through linearization.
