In this context, "so" can be translated as "in this way..." or "that's how..."


That is actually the essence of the word "so". To every question, there is one super generic answer. This generic answer means nothing by itself because it is just a reference, either to something that is verbalized or to something that is actually being pointed at.

Wann - dann
Wo - da
Was - das

"So" is the generic answer to "wie".

Wie? So.
How? Like that.

In this case it seems to be a headline, so "so" is basically referring to whatever comes after... probably a description of sorts.

For a more detailed take on "so", check out this article on my blog.
