A Place in Space: Earth Orbits

A Place in Space: Earth Orbits (download pdf – 4.4 MB) May 2019

Location, location, location! Where a satellite orbits Earth is a major factor in how well it does its job. It takes a lot of different perspectives to collect data to help us understand how our planet works. Explore Earth’s different orbits, then race your friends in a scale model of high, mid and low Earth orbits. Who do you think can make the most laps in a minute?

At EO Kids we are committed to making Earth science fun and engaging. Come explore our Earth with us.


EO Kids is written for audiences aged 9 to 14. It is published with support from NASA’s Landsat, Terra, and Aqua missions.
