AB - Copyright © 2018 by the Editors.All rights reserved. This work builds on a private communication detailing the potential for a LISA Pathfinder (LPF) test of the inverse square law. Various sources are explored as tests of this law using basic calculations, and plotted with the potential contribution from LPF based on a measurement of the acceleration gradient through the Sun-Earth gravitational saddle point. It is found that an intermediate acceleration range could be filled by this measurement, but would not reach the lower accelerations that other systems have reached.
