While we haven’t seen this skill in action, the Astrodynamics skill almost certainly gives fuel and jump distance buffs to your ship’s gravity drive. Making it very useful to those with the Spaced trait.

Starfield Astrodynamics skill overview

The Starfield Astrodynamics skill is a tier 1 skill in the Science skill tree. It, as with all Starfield skills, has 4 ranks, beginning at rank 1 and ending at rank 4. In order to progress up the Astrodynamics skill tree, you will need to complete various skill challenges related to the skill in question, and increase your Starfield level to earn skill points. Each rank requires a skill point to unlock.

This skill allows you to travel greater distances by increasing your grav drive range and reducing fuel costs from grav jumping. Rank 1 increases your grav drive range, while rank 2 will decrease your fuel costs. The final rank will decrease your fuel cost from grav jumping by 50%.

As you will be grav jumping frequently throughout your playthrough it may be a good idea to invest in this skill to reduce fuel costs and save time in the long run.
