Question: Getting a value of a constant

Hello everybody,

While doing a document about quantum mechanics, I stumble on this strange behaviour.

>with(ScientificConstants);
>GetConstant(a[0]);
>GetValue(a[0])

Error message:

Error, (in ScientificConstants:-GetValue) `a[0]` is not a scientific constant object

But in the Assistant Scientific Constant, the value is there: 5.291772e-11m

Why is it not directly available like I did the first time?

Thank you in advance for your help.
