Specifications for Quick Knowledge content
How to prepare your Quick Knowledge
1. Write a headline. For example, “The lowdown on low orbits”.
2. Write a maximum of 10 short sentences (max. 255 characters) per fact / idea.
What is an orbit? An orbit is the path that an object takes in space when it goes around a star, planet or moon. Orbits come in different shapes. An object in an orbit is called a satellite. They may be moons or man-made, for example, the International Space Station.
A low earth orbit (LEO) is found at altitudes between 200 km and 2000 km.
Spacecraft in these orbits travel in an orbital period of 128 minutes or less – faster than the earth spins. Earth observation satellites (e.g. Copernicus Sentinels) and spy satellites use LEO.
3. Add one image or video to each slide to reflect the main idea of the content or just support the idea in an engaging way. The aspect ratio should be 4:3, the dimensions ideally 1000x700px. All images and videos posted online must be credited, so please indicate the author, the source website (if applicable) and, for a photo or video, where it was taken or filmed.
4. Information about you.
Provide us with info about yourself as an author: your name, title, a link to your LinkedIn profile or website (if you wish) and add your profile picture.
