Kosmos 147 (Russian: Космос 147 meaning Cosmos 147) or Zenit-2 No.44 was a Soviet, first generation, low resolution, optical film-return reconnaissance satellite launched in 1967. A Zenit-2 spacecraft, Kosmos 147 was the forty-seventh of eighty-one such satellites to be launched.[5][6] and had a mass of 4,000 kilograms (8,800 lb).[1]

Kosmos 147 was launched by a Vostok-2 rocket, serial number N15001-06,[7] flying from Site 41/1 at the Plesetsk Cosmodrome. The launch took place at 12:10:23 GMT on 13 March 1967,[2] and following its successful arrival in orbit the spacecraft received its Kosmos designation; along with the International Designator 1967-022A and the Satellite Catalog Number 02710.[1]

Kosmos 147 was operated in a low Earth orbit, at an epoch of 13 March 1967, it had a perigee of 195 kilometres (121 mi), an apogee of 301 kilometres (187 mi), an inclination of 65.0°, and an orbital period of 89.5 minutes.[4] After eight days in orbit, Kosmos 147 was deorbited, with its return capsule descending under parachute and landing at 06:29 GMT on 21 March 1967, and recovered by the Soviet forces. An unspecified problem with the satellite resulted in the mission being considered a partial failure.[3]
