Progress M-47, identified by NASA as Progress 10 or 10P, was a Progress spacecraft used to resupply the International Space Station. It was a Progress-M 11F615A55 spacecraft, with the serial number 247.[1]

Progress M-47 was launched by a Soyuz-U carrier rocket from Site 1/5 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome. Launch occurred at 12:59:40 GMT on 2 February 2003.[1] The spacecraft docked with the Aft port of the Zvezda module at 14:49:04 GMT on 4 February.[2][3] It remained docked for almost seven months before undocking at 22:48:08 GMT on 27 August 2003[2] to make way for Progress M-48.[4] It was deorbited at 01:49 GMT the next day.[2] The spacecraft burned up in the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean, with any remaining debris landing in the ocean at around 02:37:46 GMT.[2][5]

Progress M-47 carried supplies to the International Space Station, including food, water and oxygen for the crew and equipment for conducting scientific research. It was the first spacecraft to launch to the International Space Station following the loss of the Space Shuttle Columbia the day prior to the Progress module's launch, which resulted in a suspension of Shuttle flights to the Station.
