My friend and I were discussing this, and google didn't seem to reveal any result.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Much like how Bohr's theory managed to derive the Rydberg constant without much effort, has the gravitational constant been found in terms of other quantities yet?

It just seems bizarre that Newton proposed a constant hundreds of years ago, and despite General relativity tearing down the walls of why gravity works, we still haven't derived G.
