The Question

(Submitted June 24, 1997)

I am looking for information on two Soviet satellites, Cosmos 207 and 208. I'm particularly interested in dates and locations for their reentry into the atmosphere.

The Answer

You found everything we know about the Cosmos satellites on our missions page: http://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/heasarc/missions/cosmos.html

You can find out information about just about every satellite ever launched in Jonathan's Space Report Satellite Catalog at http://planet4589.org/space/log/satcat.txt

Kosmos-207Launch 1968 Mar 16.00Landed 1968 Mar 24
Kosmos-208Launch 1968 Mar 21.00Landed 1968 Apr 2

I have no idea where you might find out WHERE these satellites actually landed. Perhaps Jonathan (his homepage with info on how to contact him is at http://hea-www.harvard.edu/QEDT/jcm/jmcdowell.html) can help you.

Hope this helps,
